Welcome to the new website for Bishop Young C of E Academy, part of Abbey Multi Academy Trust. We hope to use this website as one element of communication in our drive to fulfil our mission to ‘To work in Partnership to educate, nurture and empower’. As our website develops, we hope that you will discover the ways in which Bishop Young C of E Academy supports students to stretch them academically; supports them pastorally and, helps them develop the skills necessary to be participating adults in an ever changing world. We continually strive for excellence so that we prepare students not only for success whilst students at this Academy but sustain them for life after school. We have high expectations of all our students and aim to equip them with the knowledge, skills and self-confidence they need to progress and achieve success. We want them to develop a life-long love of learning where they are motivated and stimulated by the world around them so that they can have a positive impact on their own life and the lives of others. Our students flourish in an environment which is welcoming, caring, calm, disciplined, inspiring and purposeful. The greatest strength of the Academy is our focus on quality teaching and learning and our commitment to the learner, which enables progress and achievement at all levels. This is supported by a newly developed pastoral team and system where support and high expectations are rooted in mutually respectful relationships. Our dedicated and forward- thinking staff focus on our culture of challenging and inspiring students, in an environment of mutual respect where each child is recognised as unique and special. We work as active partners with primary and secondary schools, both formally, as part of a developing Multi Academy Trust and informally, collaborating with partners as diverse as local universities; social enterprises; local and national businesses; the Diocese; international schools; and, of course, our local community. Our aim is to ensure that we enhance opportunities and experiences for all our students. I welcome you to explore our website or visit the academy where you can learn more about our aim to work in partnership to educate, nurture and empower. Mrs Carol Kitson, CEO/Executive Principal, Abbey Multi Academy Trust
I would like to introduce myself as the Principal and to welcome you to our website. Our academy is a state of the art building with exceptional staff and students who make the academy such a unique learning environment. This is an exciting time for us all as the academy is poised to join the Abbey Multi Academy Trust and become Bishop Young Church of England Academy. This truly marks a new chapter for the staff, students and community. Bishop Young Church of England Academy is about to achieve great things. Together we need to be both realistic about the challenges ahead, but unswerving in our commitment to tackling them with pace and the confidence that we can affect rapid change. This also marks a new chapter in my career, and I am excited about embarking on the journey that will see BYA become a hub of the community and a beacon for excellence. I have a clear vision for the academy that Bishop Young CofE will become and robust plans in place to ensure that all students excel both academically, socially and emotionally in line with our Christian ethos.
