“Our priority is to ensure that students, staff and parents are proud to belong to The Quest and take pride in their achievements and the contribution they make to the local community”.

Your son’s or daughter’s education is as important to us as it is to you and we are committed to ensuring that each student succeeds academically and personally.

Our motto, Learning Changes Lives (Eruditio Vitas Commutat) reflects our belief in the importance of our work. We are committed to making sure that every student makes outstanding progress. We have high expectations of every student, offer the best quality teaching and insist on the highest standards of behaviour and respect.

The Quest Academy is a positive, rich and innovative learning environment where every student can achieve excellence in all that they do, in the classroom and beyond.

We offer a wide range of enrichment activities to extend learning in a range of contexts and promote leadership, teamwork, reflection, confidence and high self-esteem.

We are constantly searching for new ways to encourage participation and service to others as the basis for the development of lifelong learning and a happy and successful life. Our strength comes from strong partnerships: with our parents, the community we serve and The Collegiate Trust. Together we have extensive experience and expertise to guide our work.

This website gives you a brief insight into our ethos and our work. Do come and visit us to see our principles in action. Please also let me know if you have any suggestions as to how we can improve further.

I am delighted to report that The Quest Academy has been rated ‘Good’ in all respects by Ofsted inspectors who visited the school in June 2015 View Report and in June 2018 View Letter.

If you’d like to find out more about us we’ve made a short video for prospective parents, students and colleagues. We hope you’ll find it interesting and informative. View Video .

I look forward to welcoming your daughter or son to The Quest Academy.
