It is a privilege to lead the Edge Academy at what has been a time of exciting change. Since joining the academy in March I have been impressed by the dedication and commitment of the hard working staff team that focus on ensuring students reach their potential. We continuously strive to provide the best opportunities for all of our students and are reassured by our recent DfE monitoring visit that confirmed we are taking the right steps in order to do just that.Read More

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.
