Welcome to the Archbishop Lanfranc Academy
Michael del Rio
Our mission is to ensure that all learners in our community benefit from the opportunities available to them in order to achieve the greatest possible success in their time with us. Our motto, Learning Changes Lives, reinforces our core belief in the value of education to positively transform people and society.
Students and staff benefit from brand new, state of the art, facilities, purpose built and officially opened in July 2018. In addition to the main teaching building the Academy has a Sports’ Centre comprising a four-court sports hall, dance studio and fitness suite. Outside space includes an all-weather 3G pitch and extensive playing fields.
Our curriculum model has been designed to encourage the development of confident, independent, learners with the skills and comprehension necessary to succeed in an increasingly competitive world. In conjunction with the extensive enrichment opportunities provided by the Academy our students are able to grow in maturity and understanding.
We are delighted that the Academy’s achievements have been recognised by Ofsted who awarded us a ‘Good’ in all respects following our first inspection in March 2017. We continue to thrive on our journey towards ‘outstanding’.
I very much look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you to the Academy in person.
