The Littlehampton Academy (TLA), part of the Woodard Academies Trust, is an improving 11-19 Academy serving the local community of Littlehampton and the surrounding area. TLA boasts excellent facilities, having moved into our state of the art new building in 2012. However, TLA is much more than just a fantastic building. We need talented staff at all levels within the Academy to ensure we can inspire, empower and accelerate outcomes for the young people we serve.
Our ethos reflects our deep commitment to delivering an outstanding education to the students we teach. We prioritise inclusion and value individuals, and excel in delivering pastoral care and personalised learning paths for our students. Our aim is to offer students not only a first-class education, but also to teach them real-life skills that will provide lifelong benefits.
Woodard Academies Trust is an education charity formed in 2007 to deliver an academy programme on behalf of Woodard Schools. Created by founder Nathaniel Woodard in 1848, Woodard is the largest group of independent Church of England schools in England and Wales. Woodard Academies Trust and Woodard Schools share a common ethos and vision: to inspire young people to make a difference.
Woodard currently sponsors five academies across the UK.
The Woodard family of schools and academies provides many inter-school opportunities; the sharing of best practice and a strength and expertise within education. Their pioneering heritage places much emphasis on leadership and personal development. From attractive, welcoming environments to modern facilities, a Woodard education offer a rich variety of extra-curricular activities, professional teaching and effective pastoral care.
TLA is a Christian designated academy and we are proud to be part of the Woodard Academies Trust. We aim to provide a rich and diverse educational environment that welcomes people of all faiths and none, and where every child is 'known and nurtured'.
We set high standards for our young people: all students are set challenging academic targets personalised to each child. We also expect our students to make us proud with their personal conduct: they are excellent ambassadors for the community and have been rightly praised for their courtesy and consideration of others. Students are encouraged to be confident, to have self-respect and to present themselves smartly at school.
Our vision is based on high expectations, inspirational leadership and increasingly personalised learning pathways, leading to improved educational achievements and enhanced opportunities as our young people prepare for, and move into, adult life. We focus on ensuring a first-class holistic education that stimulates, challenges and develops the whole person, and enables each individual student to achieve in all areas of their school life.
We ensure that they keep pace with national and international developments, providing students with the real-life skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. Alongside outstanding teaching and learning, we provide a huge range of extra-curricular activities that develop new interests and skills, celebrate all aspects of learning, and challenge young people to move out of their comfort zone. "Our aim is to be recognised as a centre of excellence where learning is fun and high standards are achieved."
Our values are rooted in our Christian ethos and are central to our vision. We reflect respect for diversity, care for our local and global community and act as stewards to preserve and value our environment. Our curriculum as well as our enrichment activities embody British values and responsible citizenship. In unity we work together as a family, showing love and respect for others, confidence in ourselves, and pride in our achievements.
