Principal's Welcome


Welcome to Thomas Clarkson Academy

I am delighted to be Principal of an Academy that puts learning and individual achievement at the heart of everything it does. Every Thomas Clarkson student is special. I want each student to succeed; to gain the best possible qualifications and become confident, thoughtful young people so they leave us prepared for the future challenges of an exciting and increasingly global world.

I expect students to benefit from increasingly good teaching where staff are encouraged to continuously enhance their teaching skills; where there is an excellent standard of student care and where high aspiration pervades the core of this magnificent building. Students can also expect to develop the important skills of leadership, teamwork and co-operation through participation in a broad range of opportunities beyond the classroom such as sport, art, drama and community service.

I also expect students to work hard, to keep trying when the going gets tough and together we will celebrate their achievements, whatever their ability level. We know that learning is at its best when staff, students and parents work closely together. Academy personnel also know the benefits to be gained from working closely with the community and local businesses.

On behalf of the staff may I say that we look forward to meeting with you and seeing you at as many Academy events as possible. It is a privilege to be sharing the responsibility of educating the young people in your care.
