George Salter Academy Prospectus
Thank you for your interest in our Academy.
As Principal, I would like to welcome you to George Salter Academy or "George’s" as it is affectionately named by students and the local community.
Our Academy is built upon mutual respect within a cohesive, multi-cultural community. It is based upon the belief that all children can e excel and should be encouraged to be even better than the best that they can be. The Academy is at the heart of its community, raising aspirations through positive, "can do" attitudes and supporting individual needs, whilst stretching and providing challenge for all. The Academy is like a family, looking after its members, supporting them to learn from mistakes, providing them with consistency, routine and high expectations, opportunities and choices.
We believe strongly that "success breeds success".
Students are treated as individuals and choose, with advice and guidance, urriculum programmes suited to their own academic and personal abilities, talents and needs. Education does not only take place during the school day. Our enrichment and study support programmes have been recognised locally and nationally for their quality. Opportunities for students range from a wide variety of sports to Duke of Edinburgh Awards, frequent theatre visits and high quality performing arts provision, holiday programmes, trips and residential visits both at home and abroad.
Our core values can be found in our six "George’s Mates": motivate, collaborate, celebrate, compassionate, innovate and create. Staff believe that by modelling and instilling “George’s Mates” into our students, they will develop into strong, caring and productive people who will be valuable members of their community and are prepared for life in modern Britain.
The overall achievement of our young people is outstanding. Examination results are excellent and many students go on to study in the sixth form and beyond.
