We know that the choice of secondary school is a crucial one for any parent or carer and we take that responsibility seriously, working hard and working together to ensure that every student ‘is the best that they can be’.

This involves developing the twin pillars of outstanding examination results and sustained personal growth, so that each young person leaves us fully equipped for the next stage in their lives.

We are an oversubscribed and disciplined community where participation, leadership and service are encouraged in order to help inspire curiosity, confidence and moral purpose.

We value academic excellence and practical learning and have a curriculum which develops the knowledge and skills that students need to be successful in all that they do.

This website will give you a brief insight into our ethos and our work; which we are also happy to show you in person.

If you’d like to find out more about us we’ve made a series of short videos for prospective parents, students and colleagues. We hope you’ll find them interesting and informative. View Videos.

Whether a prospective student, parent or a member of staff, I look forward to welcoming you to our Academy.

Mr A. Crofts, BA (Hons), PGCE, NPQH, NPQEL
Executive Principal

The Quest Academy is a community in which every member, both student and staff, strives to achieve their maximum potential. Our purposeful environment and shared positive attitude make Quest a special place to learn. It is my privilege to lead such an inspirational group of people.

Whether in our academic studies, during extra-curricular activities or in everyday interaction, the motivation to learn and to better ourselves is key to our success. Within this we believe that getting the little things right really matters; we hold all members of our community to the highest of standards.

We passionately believe in our motto – “Learning Changes Lives”. We work tirelessly to ensure everyone has the skills required to make this happen and that they put these to use in every lesson, every day. We regularly discuss the attributes required to be successful, using the acronym “LEARN”.

Through this, we provide an environment that nurtures students to help them achieve their potential and leads to them having the best possible life chances and choices. They develop the skills needed to learn academically, they are empowered to make healthy choices for themselves and those around them and they develop aspirations that are as high as possible. We help students develop their resilience so they not only bounce back from disappointments, but actively look for the learning opportunities they provide, and make sure students are kind to one another; celebrating diversity, in all its forms, as an absolute positive.

Our students, staff and parents all demand the best of ourselves and each other. The successes of current and previous students of the Quest Academy provide inspiration for the future. We are an academy of which every member is proud, in which only the highest standard is acceptable, and in which Learning Changes Lives.

Mr T. Beecham, BSc (Hons), PGCE, MA
Head of School
