At Mossbourne Community Academy, we have fostered an environment that allows our pupils to achieve and to aim to be the best that they can be; we enable our pupils to aspire to challenge stereo type and defy glass ceilings by enabling them to challenge obstacles or barriers.
A varied, personalised curriculum combined with extension and enrichment opportunities, unique sporting and musical specialisms, means every pupil has so many things they love about learning here.
We put the onus on the pupils to be organised; they are expected to have the correct books and equipment every day and to meet all deadlines. Through use of the pupil planner – a key item of equipment which is used to record homework assignments and appointments with staff – pupils manage their time and study commitments during prep sessions. These silent study sessions help pupils to prioritise work schedules, stay organised, develop independent study skills and take ownership of their own learning.
The move from primary school to secondary school can be both an exciting and challenging time for children.
Newcomers begin to develop their understanding of secondary school life, while forming new peer groups, within the first few weeks. Therefore, we at MCA believe that good preparation is vital for a positive start.
We work hard to ensure Year 7 students experience a smooth start at the academy. Our Transition Team works closely with primary schools to get to know each child and understand their specific abilities and needs.
Students benefit from a strong focus on pastoral care throughout academy life; it’s a personal approach that ensures teaching is responsive and tailored to the individual.
Our wider curriculum offers opportunities from chess to architecture, the Duke of Edinburgh Award to our Film Paradiso Foreign Film Club. Students can also participate in a number of sporting clubs and teams, competing either at local and national levels, or just for fun. Music is the academy’s specialism and the Performing Arts Learning Area offers a range of opportunities for students to express themselves creatively at both junior and senior levels. Due to the wide variety of experiences on offer, the curriculum experience at Mossbourne fosters students who are informed, curious, confident, empathetic, healthy and resilient.Find out more
