Welcome to Ansford Academy where you will find a warm and welcoming community with a commitment to sustained development. We are a mixed 11-16 school which is fully comprehensive in nature with approximately 550 students on roll. As a smaller than average secondary school, we are able to truly value the individual and work hard to create opportunities for every student to achieve their full potential.

At Ansford, education is about everyone achieving their best, while developing individual character and personality. We are committed to creating a great place to learn, work and grow. Our motto, learning together to lead our lives, reflects our passionate belief in equipping individuals with the skills to make a success of their lives – to secure useful and rewarding work, make and sustain good relationships and contribute positively to local and global communities.

In our fast-moving and challenging world, a strong portfolio of qualifications opens doors and increases opportunities but does not, on its own, guarantee success. Our focus at Ansford Academy – for students, teachers, associate staff and families – is on learning how to be the best we can be in all aspects of our lives. 

We seek to achieve this through a constant desire for growth in three key areas:

  • Unlocking potential and securing futures
  • Laying the foundations for lifelong learning
  • Forming and maintaining quality relationships 

We take seriously the responsibilities of working together as a community, striving for excellence in all we do and ensuring that all of us are valued for who we are and who we can become.  Through high academic and personal expectations, we inspire our students to enjoy their time here and ensure that they leave fully prepared for the next phase of their lives.
