Samuel Whitbread Academy


We believe that every student should have the OPPORTUNITY to ACHIEVE and EXCEL. At Samuel Whitbread high attainment, ambition and aspiration are celebrated. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves in every aspect of school life.

All HA students have the opportunity to take triple science at GCSE and the FSMQ should they wish. Throughout these years students are invited to lectures; opportunities to explore further education pathways and bespoke careers advice.

All HA students are invited to join The Society, an enriching and extra-curricular initiative designed to support students with raising their aspirations; providing appropriate support and training for their chosen next steps and providing wider curriculum experiences, including trips, visits guest speakers and workshops. All students are invited to participate in the Super Curriculum, offering a range of subject specific opportunities for them to explore. For details regarding these initiatives can be found in the appropriate tabs.
