Welcome to Sybil Andrews Academy,
Located just north of Bury St Edmunds in an attractive, university-style campus, our academy is built around an ethos founded on the principle of mutual respect, a strong set of values, powerful, supportive relationships and high aspirations and ambition for all.
Our aims are simple. We want all of our learners to achieve academic success, think creatively and become confident and responsible citizens. We expect everyone to be the best that they can be, and yet strive to be more.
We believe that for learning to be meaningful, the curriculum pupils study should be broad and balanced, offering high challenge to all. We aim to help pupils grow in confidence through participation in our innovative club programmes, and have an intentional focus on the development of leadership skills. Values and skills are taught together in a safe, supportive and friendly environment where the shaping of character attributes such as resilience, responsibility, honesty and compassion are given as much importance as academic study.
We also know that your son or daughter is unique, that they have their own interests, aspirations and needs. As a small school, we can be certain that nobody is overlooked and that whilst all pupils will be stretched, they will also be very well supported. On entry to the academy, all pupils will be assigned a learning coach who will act as an advocate and mentor, and it is their role to work in partnership with you to help your child realise success.
For us, community matters. Our pupils belong to many communities: the whole school, their house, their coaching group and, of course, the wider community beyond our doors. It is our intention, through working with others around us, to help them become the people that they, and you, want them to be.
Finally, you are welcome to visit at any time. We are more than happy to answer your questions and look forward to meeting you.
