Principal's Welcome

At Ditton Park Academy we never forget that parents entrust us with one of the most important and rewarding jobs in the world, the education of their children.

For us, that means unlocking the potential within every child in ways that ultimately make them happy, confident and competent young adults. They are unique and we want them to fulfil their potential by the time they leave us as young adults. I hope our new website will provide you with a brief insight into some of the excellent work we are doing in teaching and learning in order to provide an excellent education for students who attend Ditton Park Academy. I would strongly recommend that you also follow us on Twitter:

Standards and high expectations are very important to us and we are extremely proud of the many achievements of students and staff at the Academy. We aim to excite young people about their learning and to celebrate their successes. Our staff have a passionate commitment to inspire through excellent teaching and learning opportunities. We welcome students of all abilities who are taught in both mixed ability and set groups.

Our supportive approach enables everyone to develop the skills and knowledge required to be responsible and considerate individuals suited to the demands of our ever-changing multicultural society. There is extensive monitoring of students’ progress and regular contact with parents. We place a high emphasis on positive behaviour which ensures the Academy is a happy and safe place within which to learn.

We believe our Academy makes a difference to young people and we very much look forward to welcoming your child to the Academy and becoming one of our many successes in the future.
