As part of the Loxford School Trust we are able to work within a hub of schools, led by Loxford School, an Outstanding school, thus ensuring that our staff are able to deliver the highest educational standards.

This enables us to stay ahead of an ever evolving education system and a constantly changing society. The Trust strongly believes in developing students, so that they are able to achieve their potential both academically and as members of our community.

We work on the traditional values of respect, discipline and responsibility to prepare our students for the challenges of examinations, social interactions and the world of work. We want all of our students to find their passion and have the tools to pursue their dreams.

Our vision is simple, “that no child is left behind”.

Students are at the centre of everything we do and we aim to give all the necessary foundations for success by helping students develop the skills and attributes that will provide them with real life-chances. Students are expected to work hard and to achieve their individual best academically, to develop skills relevant to the 21st Century and to develop the self-confidence and sense of purpose necessary for success in a highly competitive global society.

Cecil Jones Academy will provide a safe, yet challenging environment where students can succeed and excel.

  • Ensure that every child leaves our school knowing themselves as an individual, as a member of a team and as a citizen
  • Create a culture of learning for life
  • Provide the skills needed for self-management, resilience and self-worth
  • Give opportunities and experiences outside of the classroom to enrich our pupils
