Principal's Introduction

Matt Robertson

Welcome to Arnold Hill Academy and thank you for visiting our website.

Arnold Hill Academy is a special place to study. Firstly, our students are very impressive young people, whose behaviour is outstanding and their achievements are genuinely something to be proud about. Our aim is for all members of the community to “Be inspired and achieve together” and I believe these things happen on a daily basis.

Staff retention remains high and student GCSE outcomes in 2018 and 2019 continued to build on the significant improvements we have made in recent years. Pupil progress at both GCSE and A Level in 2018 and 2019 were both above average. We are currently full to capacity in Years 7, 8 and 9 and have waiting lists for students hoping to join these year groups.

We encourage our students to act responsibly and help them to become mature, independent young people. Given such positive attitudes, it is no surprise that we enjoy such success in academic and extra-curricular pursuits. We very much believe in the potential of every student, enabling them to thrive in our caring environment.

We are extremely optimistic for the future; both for our students’ prospects and the success of the Academy. We have been a member of the Spencer Academies Trust for a full year now and the trust continues to play a significant role in helping us accelerate the improvements we have been making at Arnold Hill. To find out more about The Spencer Academies Trust, please visit www.satrust.com.

I hope the information within this website provides you with some additional details about the Academy that will be helpful to you. We are always happy to show visitors around and should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best wishes

Matt Robertson
