The Littlehampton Academy (TLA), part of the Woodard Academies Trust, is an improving 11-19 Academy serving the local community of Littlehampton and the surrounding area. TLA boasts excellent facilities, having moved into our state of the art new building in 2012. However, TLA is much more than just a fantastic building. We need talented staff at all levels within the Academy to ensure we can inspire, empower and accelerate outcomes for the young people we serve.
Our ethos reflects our deep commitment to delivering an outstanding education to the students we teach. We prioritise inclusion and value individuals, and excel in delivering pastoral care and personalised learning paths for our students. Our aim is to offer students not only a first-class education, but also to teach them real-life skills that will provide lifelong benefits.
TLA is a Christian designated academy and we are proud to be part of the Woodard Academies Trust. We aim to provide a rich and diverse educational environment that welcomes people of all faiths and none, and where every child is 'known and nurtured'.
We set high standards for our young people: all students are set challenging academic targets personalised to each child. We also expect our students to make us proud with their personal conduct: they are excellent ambassadors for the community and have been rightly praised for their courtesy and consideration of others. Students are encouraged to be confident, to have self-respect and to present themselves smartly at school.
Woodard Academies Trust is an education charity formed to deliver an academy programme on behalf of Woodard Schools. Created by founder Nathaniel Woodard in 1848, Woodard is the largest group of independent Church of England Schools in England and Wales. Woodard Academies Trust and Woodard Schools share a common ethos of faith, unity and vision and are determined to inspire young people to make a difference.
Our Christian ethos reflects our deep commitment to delivering an outstanding education to our students. We prioritise inclusion and value individuals and our academies welcome students and staff of all faiths and none.
We excel in delivering pastoral care and personalised learning paths. Our aim is to offer students a first-class education and teach them real-life skills that will provide lifelong benefits. We are passionate about enrichment and the development of the whole person, so our schools and academies run extensive sporting, music, arts, community and charity programmes. Duke of Edinburgh and programmes through The National Citizenship Service feature strongly in our academies.
Our vision is based on high expectations, inspirational leadership and increasingly personalised learning pathways, leading to improved educational achievements and enhanced opportunities as our young people prepare for, and move into, adult life. We focus on ensuring a first-class holistic education that stimulates, challenges and develops the whole person, and enables each individual student to achieve in all areas of their school life.
We ensure that our students keep pace with national and international developments, providing them with the real-life skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. Alongside outstanding teaching and learning, we provide a huge range of extra-curricular activities that develop new interests and skills, celebrate all aspects of learning, and challenge young people to move out of their comfort zone. "Our aim is to be recognised as a centre of excellence where learning is fun and high standards are achieved."
Our values are rooted in our Christian ethos and are central to our vision. We reflect respect for diversity, care for our local and global community and act as stewards to preserve and value our environment. Our curriculum as well as our enrichment activities embody British values and responsible citizenship. We work together as a family, showing love and respect for others, confidence in ourselves, and pride in our achievements.
