About

A new breed of school for a new generation of students

Not aDSC_2929ll teenagers are the same and, here at the Robert Owen Academy, we believe not every school needs to be identical either.

So we offer a different way for your child to reach their full potential – one that mixes high academic expectations with work-based vocational training in a pioneering new approach to learning.

In addition to core national curriculum qualifications of English, Maths and Science at GCSE, we teach a flexible range of professional qualifications, including BTECs and NVQs, in both technical and vocational areas including land managDSC00276ement, horticulture, engineering, technology and media design, environmDSC00274ental sciences and other STEM-based programmes (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). Exciting new sports scholarships in football, golf, rugby and dance are also available.

Welcome to a different kind of school for 14 – 19 year olds.

Learners will be given the opportunity to work closely with a range of stakeholders across the commercial sector on real-time projects that focus on applying key theoretical principles to practical solution-focused activity – making a real difference to their community and their future.

DSC00279Our aim is to support the next generation of business leaders, inventors and entrepreneurs in developing their knowledge base in their chosen area(s) of interest and then applying the essential leadership and interpersonal skills that will make organisations highly effective world leaders.

So, for a different kind of future, why not give your child the chance to develop the knowledge, skills and experience he or she needs to succeed in life – whether they choose to go on to university, further training or straight into work.DSC00259
