Welcome from the Principal

Welcome from the Principal

I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to Haughton Academy on behalf of the students, staff and governing body. We are a forward thinking, exciting and happy school, where children of all abilities and social backgrounds achieve high standards. Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. 

As a parent myself, I realise that questions such as:

Will my child…

• make good progress and achieve their potential?

• be safe and well cared for?

• be happy at the school?

are vital to the decision-making process. 

At Haughton Academy we passionately believe that all young people can achieve if challenged to do so, in a safe and happy environment. We have highly experienced teachers who challenge all students to do their best, all of the time. The staff at Haughton Academy enjoy working with young people and are fully committed to doing their very best for them.

I hope that you enjoy this website. It is intended to give you a flavour of all that happens at Haughton Academy and all that we stand for; what it cannot do is give you a real sense of the warm, friendly and caring atmosphere around school. I look forward to welcoming both you and your child personally to Haughton Academy.
