Welcome from the Campus Principal
Hello and welcome to Fortis Academy. Our new school was launched in September 2020, and it is my honour to be its first Principal and, together with our dedicated staff, be able to serve the local community.
‘The word Fortis in Latin means brave, courageous, strong. Our school name, our unique school set up of separate Foundation and Senior academies and our vision – all taken together – will provide the very best opportunities for your child to learn, grow and achieve.
A broad, challenging and responsive curriculum provides the foundation for excellent teaching which, enriched by technology, will inspire and engage our students.
Caring and ambitious pastoral care will also ensure students feel safe, valued and in good health to take advantage of the opportunities provided.
Strong partnership working with parents, stakeholders, educational agencies and businesses will place Fortis at the centre of the local community where together far more will be achieved.
Your child will be encouraged every day to be ready to learn, to be respectful of themselves and others and to be safe, both physically and emotionally, to prepare for a fulfilling life. Above all, they will be encouraged to be courageous in achieving their ambitions.
I hope you will see that, through our website and prospectus, Fortis Academy is making rapid improvements and developments and urge you to read about the vision that the Headteachers of each academy have for their students.
We are not just a school, but a real community seeking to ignite potential in every child. We will help and encourage them to be knowledgeable, reflective and considerate, embodied by the motto: Ready, Respectful, Safe.
We want our students to be comfortable with who they are and to have the confidence, the skills and the courage to make their way in the world when they leave us at the age of sixteen or eighteen.
However, don’t just take our word for it. Please email or call to arrange a visit and a tour at a time of your choice.
My best wishes
