Welcome from the Head of South Shore Academy

I am very honoured to welcome you to South Shore Academy and delighted to introduce you to this truly exceptional school.

South Shore Academy is proud to be part of Bright Futures Educational Trust. As a member of the Trust, we access a wide range of opportunities for staff and students, and we are fortunate to work with schools across the Bright Futures network. The value of this network is such that it gives all members of South Shore’s community the opportunities to achieve their potential, and to thrive.

At South Shore Academy our vision is for all students to be confident, independent, and resilient learners who leave SSA with limitless possibilities to fulfil all their future ambitions becoming well rounded, positive global citizens, who make a difference. This is a school designed to support and develop its local community and everything we do is driven by our three core values of ambition, respect, and resilience. Our firm belief in these three values ensures our dedication to high quality education for everyone within the South Shore Academy’s community. At South Shore Academy, our commitment to provide a broad and balanced education for all our pupils is strong, resulting in the highest possible academic achievement, a full awareness of personal and social responsibility and a commitment to our values through the teachings of the curriculum.

Students are at the very centre of every aspect of South Shore Academy. We have a clear moral purpose and strong educational philosophy – to provide each student with the highest quality of education and ensure that, no matter what their background is, students leave SSA with the skills, knowledge and support they need to thrive in life beyond school. At South Shore Academy we ensure students have access to a wide range of educational opportunities, both academic and extra-curricular, that prepares them for their future and opens their prospects for further development. We believe in challenge with compassion; every student will be given the opportunity to achieve academic success in an environment that places students’ wellbeing at the heart of everything we do. We are an ambitious school and aim to become a leading education establishment, not only within the local area but beyond.

We are very proud of our community. We believe that every member of our community deserves the utmost respect, and we will endeavour to ensure our school environment achieves the best for everyone and the best from everyone.
