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 May 2010 OFSTED reported that “Stewards is an inspiring and ambitious school”. They judged that "outcomes for pupils are outstanding" and that "pupils are exceptionally well cared for". They commented favourably on many aspects of school life and stated that "the development of personal skills such as independence and cooperation that will support pupils' future in the world of work is exceptionally good".
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.

On Monday 22nd of April, 47 Yr.7 students accompanied by Mr Ford, Mr Locke, Miss Dangerfield and Miss McGarry, set off for Bude in Cornwall at 5:30am. 7 hours later we arrived and were straight onto the beach to catch the waves on our surfboards.
Stewards recently held an E-Safety Assembly, which briefed Students on responsible use of Internet and social networking sites. Parents/Carers will soon be invited to attend an evening briefing to highlight internet safety.
Years 7, 8 & 9 – Parent E-Safety Session – Tuesday 11th June 2013 – 6pm
Stewards Academy will be offering a Parent E-Safety session to be held for all parents of Key Stage 3 pupils on the 11th June 2013. This session will provide parents with the knowledge and strategies to help protect their son/daughter online. It will be free of charge to all parents that wish to attend.
Over the past few weeks pupils of all Key Stage 3 year groups have received a unique session about the importance of online safety, highlighting the importance of taking responsibility for their own internet usage, the dangers that can arise and the consequences of irresponsible behaviour online.
This parent session will cover many of the topics which are very relevant to our young people as they use the internet, such as social networks, mobile phones and internet usage from the point of view of a parent. We will include up-to-date knowledge of the online world, how young people use the internet and what precautions parents can take to ensure they can protect their son / daughter online.
The session will take place in the Conference Room, starting at 6pm and will run for approximately 1 hour. Refreshments will be provided. If you wish to attend please return reply slip at bottom of the letter which was sent before half term.
