Welcome to the website of The Edge Academy- I hope it provides you with a flavour of academy life and all of the information you require.
I am immensely proud to have been appointed Principal of The Edge from April 2018- I live locally, was born and bred in Northfield and have a great affinity for the academy having initially joined it as Vice Principal in April 2017. Prior to joining The Edge, I started my career as a French teacher, became a Head of Year and went on to work on senior leadership teams for ten years in three secondary schools in Nottinghamshire and the West Midlands.

We have recently hosted a number of monitoring visits as part of external quality assurance processes alongside our internal improvement planning.
A safeguarding inspection visit involved checking our single central register, recruitment processes, and systems for ensuring the safety and well-being of students. The visit included a tour by one of our Year 11 students who really impressed our visitors with his engagement levels and his ability to articulate what The Edge Academy has done for him. Our students make us proud every day and it is always good to hear praise for them from visitors.
A fire safety inspection visit was carried out by the fire service to ensure our building and practices are safe and compliant. The officers gave the following feedback:
“We are impressed with the systems in place. It is clear there is good management.”
We welcome feedback from external visitors and always use it as an opportunity for further improvement.
