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.

Stewards pupils Harry Dorman, Darcy Wylie and Bradley Rimell were invited to speak at prestigious Prices Teaching Institute Conference!
Stewards Academy was thrilled to have been asked to bring along year 7 pupils to speak at a conference at the Ickworth Hotel organised by The Prince's Teaching Institute. The occasion was the first time that the prestigious national organisation has organised a conference aimed at primary head teachers and teachers. Three year 7 pupils from Stewards Academy, Darcy Wylie, Harry Dorman and Bradley Rimell were chosen by Assistant Headteacher Marie Erwood to take on this daunting task. All three pupils took centre stage at the conference and were the first speakers of the day, and they answered a series of questions about their primary school experiences.
Wiktoria Zygadlo, George Strachan and Hannah Kizilcan with their results.
We were delighted to achieve our best ever GCSE results this summer with over 60% achieving 5 or more A*-C grades with English and Maths. Progress grades for English and Maths were excellent. There were many outstanding individual performances including George Strachan who attained the highest results in the town (15 A* and 1 A grade). Congratulations to the outgoing Year 11, to staff for the high quality of teaching and hard work that lies behind these results and to parents for your support. We have raised the bar yet again for 2014-15 and look forward to another successful year.
