The Highcrest Academy

The Highcrest Academy is the first 11-19 comprehensive school in Buckinghamshire. We have an excellent track record for trainees, having worked in the past with a number of providers, supporting and guiding trainees through to their first jobs and beyond. We are very keen to develop future teachers and share their passion for their subject.
 
We are a vibrant, happy school in which every student is given the opportunity to develop their talents and to flourish as individuals. The childrens' education is as important to us as it is to them and their parents and we are relentless in our pursuit of building a cohesive culture and curriculum that matches the varied needs of our students.
 
Our motto, ‘Aspire and Achieve’ is central to our philosophy.  We are committed to making sure that every student makes outstanding progress and succeeds both academically and in terms of their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.  Indeed, we value a strong work ethic and aim to develop, sometimes hidden or unsuspected talent, into fruition.
 
Here at Highcrest, we are committed to setting high expectations for the conduct of our pupils and believe it is crucial for there to be an established culture in which all are able to excel. We want all the children who come to the academy to enjoy their learning and to become thoughtful, articulate, confident and responsible members of society.  
 
Our personalised curriculum is enhanced by numerous extra-curricular opportunities, community and business projects, national and international competitions and a thriving House System. This encourages staff and students of all ages to work together.
 
Our website will give you a brief insight into our ethos and our work. However, there is no substitute for a visit to us, to see for yourself what makes The Highcrest Academy so special. Please take the opportunity to arrange a visit and experience our happy and caring community in action.
 
We have a fantastic body of pupils with a whole range of abilities, needs and wants! With our comprehensive intake you can develop your skills both in working with the More Able academically, but also in learning to support a range of SEN needs and learning to teach an array of pupils with English as a second language. If you really want a variety of experiences, a challenge, but to make the difference then please do come and look at ITT at Highcrest.
