Ethos and values
“A very warm welcome to you and your family. I’m Dr Philip Hills and it is my pleasure and privilege to be the Principal of The Grange Academy. Both our incredible facilities and our expert approach to teaching and learning reflect a unique fusion of the traditional and the modern. We believe that all children should have access to the best things that have been thought and said.
We have the highest aspirations for our students regardless of their starting points or backgrounds, and we foster a climate of resilience and perseverance in which academic success is always celebrated. By offering a broad range of activities and clubs we want all of our pupils to find areas where they will thrive and succeed so that they truly look forward to coming to school every day.
I hope our website will give you a flavour of what an education at The Grange can offer your child, and we hope that you will come and visit to find out more. I am confident that when you do, you will discover a school where aspiration, dynamism and the highest standards of learning are intertwined with manners, respect and, above all, kindness.”
The Grange Academy is a flourishing mixed, non-selective secondary school and sixth form based in Bushey, Hertfordshire, admitting students from the ages of 11 to 18.
We are part of Future Academies Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), and share their high standards of excellence.
We offer a rich and stimulating education comprised of a knowledge-rich curriculum, diverse cultural and extracurricular opportunities, and a strong pastoral support system. All children are welcomed in our inclusive community, and all are challenged to be the best they can be.
With the support of our sponsors, Future, we are able to engage with the best teachers, the best universities and a wide range of the most prominent employers in the country to ensure that all our children are equipped with the knowledge and desire to be the best in whatever path they wish to follow. This ethos is embodied in our Trust values (Knowledge, Aspiration, and Respect) and in our school motto, libertas per cultum (freedom through education).
