Foundation Academy

In our Foundation Academy we believe that the right curriculum opportunities will build a firm foundation for continued success for all our students. It is vital that students engage with their learning and that they are excited by the opportunities to enquire and explore across a wide range of subjects, developing a lifelong love of learning.

Senior Academy

In our Senior Academy we believe that having made excellent progress in KS3 our students will be well prepared for the demands and opportunities of KS4. As students start to become experts in the skills they choose, we guide and support them to become the best they can be.

Sixth Form Academy

At Fortis Academy Sixth Form, every student receives the tools to promote their love of learning and thirst for knowledge in the specialist areas they have chosen to excel. Ultimately, every student will become a capable, active member of society who has the will and ability to enrich the lives of others.
