The Academy is part of The Shared Learning Trust - a family of schools, sharing our practice and beliefs to produce young people who achieve more that than they ever thought possible.

It is highly important to me that every student gains a taste of academic and personal success throughout their time at The Stockwood Park Academy no matter their starting point. I believe that education opens the door to endless possibilities – this was a message given to me by mother, and something I have tried to instil in my son – and I want all the students at the Academy to have same opportunity to aspire to the highest level of academic achievement possible. Together we will make this happen.
