We are an Academy with strong moral values that firmly believes the power of education shapes children’s lives. The Academy is centred on a culture of excellence where we respect each other, are self-motivated, disciplined, have a thirst for learning, and a strong sense of pride in belonging to the Academy.
George Spencer Academy is committed to providing educational opportunities of the highest quality for all its pupils and we believe in educating the whole child. We deliver a broad education that is ambitious, varied and stimulating in a caring environment that creates well-rounded individuals who excel and benefit from our innovative approaches to teaching and learning. We are mindful that academic results only go so far and therefore provide a curriculum that includes a comprehensive programme that supports children in preparing for life in modern Britain, and provides a wide range of extra-curricular and enrichment opportunities.
