I am delighted to have the opportunity of introducing you to Stewards Academy.

At Stewards, pupil achievement is at the heart of all we do. We encourage all our students to do their best, to achieve the best examination results they can and to develop their personal and social skills to the full.

In June 2013 OFSTED Inspectors recognised Stewards as a good school with many examples of outstanding practise. They said that students achieve well and make good progress. Inspectors were very impressed by the quality of teaching and by the behaviour and safety of pupils which was graded outstanding.

Inspectors reported: "The attitude and behaviour of students are exemplary because of the great importance the Academy places on their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Working with their teachers, they have created an exceptionally safe, caring and supportive community of which they are very proud to belong."

The Inspectors spoke to very many students in lessons, in meetings and around the school. They were extremely impressed. Stewards students are described as; "articulate, caring and well-adjusted young people who can offer much to British Society." All members of Stewards community can feel extremely proud to have received such a positive endorsement of our work.

Everyone has a vital part to play in developing our school. We listen to our students, respect their views and regularly celebrate their successes and achievements across the whole spectrum of school life.

We have created an atmosphere of trust and collaboration at the school - a place where everyone is respected and where the traditional values of mutual care, consideration and acceptance flourish. We are committed to students becoming good citizens who will contribute positively to society.

Stewards Academy has gained an excellent reputation within the local community. We have strong links with parents and with the business community. In recent years we have achieved numerous national awards in recognition of the high quality education we offer. Visitors invariably comment on the friendly, purposeful and welcoming atmosphere of Stewards Academy. The website will give you information about the work of the teaching departments and an idea of what we value in a school of which we are justly proud.

  • Remembrance Day at Stewards Academy

    Stewards Academy played host yet again to the Normandy war veterans and their families for a special afternoon of Remembrance, organised by English teacher and former Head Girl of Stewards, Miss Brigenshaw. Moving poetry in English and French, some written by the pupils themselves, stunning art work, superbly choreographed modern dance sequences and a sing- a - long of First World War classics - all made up a very touching programme of events. The veterans have been coming to Stewards for many years and are regarded by one and all as part of the Stewards extended family. Pupils who belong to the scouts, guides, army and sea cadets, all proudly wore their uniforms to school for the day and joined in the service at the end of the day. The sale of poppies was such that the British Legion had to deliver more boxes of poppies for the charity monitors to sell. The veterans were given a delicious high tea and younger pupils queued up to have the privilege of meeting the war veterans who mean so much to the children.

  • Freedom March

    Students from Stewards Academy paid their respects to the Royal Anglian Regiment, for the resilience, service and sacrifice shown by our brave heroes and to welcome our troops back home The Freedom March. The Royal Anglian Regiment is a battle group in the British Army who were given the right to march in the town since being given the freedom of Harlow in 2012. They formed up by Harlow Post Office and marched through the town centre amidst cheering crowds to finish with an inspection outside the council offices in the Water Gardens.


    Waiting at the end of the parade the students cheered and waved their Union Flags as the soldiers smartly formed up for the inspection. The Mayor of Harlow reminded the audience of the Resilience of the troops who lost comrades during their recent tour of duty.

    The 24 Stewards students are all members of a uniformed youth organisation in and around Harlow and represented not only Stewards Academy but the Scouts, Guides, Sea/Army/Air/Marine Cadets and Boys Brigade. They were all very happy to witness and celebrate the soldiers’ safe return from recent tours in Afghanistan and Mali. Along with teacher Mr Ofori (Ex Royal Logistics Corps) the students wore their respective uniforms or Stewards Academy Uniform with pride.
