Mill Chase Academy

Principal's Welcome

MCA is a small, friendly, vibrant academy with high standards and expectations.  We pride ourselves on knowing every young person as an individual and challenging each of them to have the highest possible aspirations.  The MCA ethos is encapsulated by our motto: Ambition, Courage, Excellence.

Everyone associated with the academy reflects these ideals in all that they do and how they approach their work each day.  Central to this ethos is the importance of developing respect for self and others and encouraging everybody‚Äôs contribution to a supportive and engaging community.  We place great emphasis on praise and reward to ensure that the endeavours of groups and individuals are widely recognised and celebrated.

Students at MCA display excellent behaviour in lessons and around the academy.  Their lessons are engaging and teachers plan for students to make high levels of progress.  Students enjoy a wealth of extra-curricular activities to enrich their experience at the academy.

Visitors comment on our purposeful learning environment and our delightful students.  To experience this for yourself, you are most welcome to arrange a tour of the academy by contacting our office.

Ambition, Courage, Excellence

We would like to welcome you to Mill Chase Academy.  We are delighted to say that during our five years at Mill Chase Academy we have really valued the experiences and education that we have been offered.  Our academy is a small, vibrant and caring establishment that believes in having high expectations and achieving excellence.

At Mill Chase Academy our teachers work hard and really care about each of us and our education as individuals.  There are many opportunities to extend our learning to ensure that we really do achieve our best.

Student Leadership is very important within the school and starts from Year 7 onwards with our Student Leadership programme and School Council.  We feel that we have a voice and can make a valuable contribution to the decisions being made within the academy.

The student body behave well and fully engage with their learning, something that is noted and commented on by the many visitors that we welcome into the academy.

Our students really do have Ambition and Courage in order to achieve Excellence.
