Year 6 Virtual Open Evening Event Info

A Warm Welcome to Our Virtual Open Evening!

Welcome to all of you in Year 6, soon to be Year 7, and your families.

The Vale is an exciting place to learn. Our new building and its fabulous learning environment has given students and staff an enormous boost, however we were proud of our record long before the new facilities came along. We are a successful and high-achieving school. We have an excellent reputation and an established trend of high student outcomes which are consistently above those achieved nationally.

We are proud of our academy and our students’ achievements. We know them well and our talented team of staff genuinely want the best for the young people in our care. We are also very well supported by parents, carers, governors and our sponsor (Delta Academies Trust).

The Vale Academy strives to provide:

  • a secure, welcoming learning environment where the individual needs of all students are recognised;
  • a vibrant, purposeful learning environment where students achieve their very best through committed and motivational teaching;
  • an aspirational learning environment dedicated to high expectations;
  • a positive, supportive community ethos of mutual respect;
  • a philosophy of continuous improvement in every aspect of the academy’s work and life;
  • for students to become responsible, enthusiastic, independent learners who develop the skills to achieve happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.

We hope you enjoy the event; explore, watch and read all about The Vale Academy below!
