Education enrichment is one of the key pillars of Future Academies. We believe that a strong careers and education enrichment programme is an essential part of raising the aspirations of our students, giving them the knowledge and skills to achieve excellence, regardless of their background, and preparing them for the world of work, future education, training and employment. All our schools must have an implementable careers plan which motivates, inspires, informs and equips young people for future success.
Visitors to Future Academies Watford encounter our vision proudly displayed at the entrance for all to see: libertas per cultum (freedom through education). At the core of everything we do is a commitment to transforming the life chances of all our young people. Through our exceptional knowledge-rich education, rich and varied extracurricular programme, and warm and supportive pastoral care system, we nurture their development into confident, articulate and successful adults with the world at their feet.
Above all, three words are woven into our academy’s culture: knowledge, aspiration and respect. We believe that knowledge is the key to academic success. Students at our school are given access to the very best that has been thought, written and said over the centuries, delivered by knowledgeable and passionate subject-specialists.
By having the highest academic and behavioural expectations for our students, we encourage them to have the highest expectations and aspirations for themselves. At Future Academies Watford, we recognise that success is as individual as our students, and we celebrate their successes each day through our rewards programme.
The value of respect can be clearly seen in all that we say and do: we respect each other; we look out for each other; and we always take the time to listen and respond. At our academy, we are proud of the collaborative relationships that we have established with our families and the wider community. We work together to help our young people develop into highly confident and polite members of society.
In short, we truly believe that an exceptional education can open doors of opportunity, and this is why we have such high standards in all that we do. Our combination of bespoke knowledge-rich curriculum, high expectations for all, diverse extracurricular programme and nurturing pastoral support system provides our students with the best foundations on which to build purposeful, successful and fulfilling lives
