Educational Vision

At Lionheart Academies Trust we passionately believe that all young people have the right to an outstanding educational experience. We subscribe to a philosophy of equity and excellence for all. We aim to have a mixed, comprehensive intake of students that are aspirant and well prepared for the future work place.

We are driven by a desire to create an outstanding post-16 education facility that is committed to extending the experiences of students traditional academic subjects by making unique links to businesses and universities. We aim to offer all students a 2 week work experience placement/internship during their summer holiday in Y12. We already have strong links with local businesses and universities which means they regularly speak at our schools, prepare our students with mock interviews, host our students at conferences and provide our students high quality work experience.

The Trust prides itself on recruiting subject specialists who are passionate about their area of expertise and can communicate this with students. Within the school we envisage busy, vibrant and invigorating classrooms, where all students are taught by a highly qualified and passionate subject specialist. We wish to challenge our students to be the best they can be so that all are engaged in their studies and develop a thirst for learning where inquisitiveness and aspiration are encouraged.

Within Lionheart Academies Trust we promote the development of building learning power in our students and promoting the 4Rs of resilience, reciprocity, reflectiveness and resourcefulness, all skills that employers and universities most value in their workforce. Our vision is to support young people to become well-educated, confident, well-rounded and responsible citizens who have a positive role to play in the future economic prosperity of Leicester, Leicestershire and beyond.
