Greensward Academy is a Science, Applied Learning and Leading Edge Academy with Training School Status with 1530 students including a sixth form of 228 and 94% of students gaining 5 A*-C grades at GCSE. In its most recent Ofsted (2008) it was described as:

‘An outstanding school that gets its best out of its students… with exceptional leadership and an ethos of sustained achievement and high standards’.

At Greensward there is an underlying vision based on a culture of high expectation and achievement within a caring community. The academy has an approach based on the fundamental principles of delivering excellence in learning and teaching and driving up achievement and attainment. All staff encourage creative, responsive and effective approaches to learning and teaching across all Key Stages to ensure a continuous and consistent Academy-wide focus on students’ achievement and development in all areas, not just academic. There is a strong commitment to drive innovation in education and to ensure that Greensward continues to be able to respond to a changing world and that the skills, learning and aspirations of the students are developed and enhanced through creative personalised learning and excellence in teaching.

As the sponsor, the AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners – to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resources available to them.

In each of the AET academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes.
