TEACHING SCHOOL STATUS
Primary and secondary schools within The White Horse Federation work closely together as a family of schools and benefit from National Teaching School status. Teaching Schools take a leading role in recruiting and training excellent new teachers.
We are an academic sixth form where our students study A Levels and many progress on to University. We are a growing Sixth Form and receive many external applications.
The current principal has brought strong leadership to the school and his high ambitions for pupils have been transmitted throughout the school. There has been a transformation of culture through high expectations of leaders and teachers. Pupils are now making more rapid progress than in recent years.
Gloucester Academy has changed. We are a school with an academic curriculum and an academic sixth form. My school leadership is all about an unshakeable belief that, through commitment, effort & great teaching, all children can succeed.

As a result, the number of applications to join us, both in Year 7 and at Sixth Form level has increased significantly. When I listen to parents, they are quick to tell me about the accelerated journey of improvement and how this has affected their own child.
I want GA to be the kind of school that if my children were now 11 years old, they would be choosing for themselves. I believe the essential ingredients in what make a great school are:
