Welcome to The Milton Keynes Academy
Raising Aspirations Raising Achievement Providing Opportunities
There is a great deal we take pride in over the continued progress of the Academy over the last few years. In 2014 record numbers of students achieved good grades in English and Mathematics, and all groups of students made strong progress, regardless of their background or prior achievement. I was delighted therefore when the efforts of students, parents and all the staff were recognised when Ofsted rated the school ‘good with outstanding leadership’ in our latest inspection.
I have always believed that great outcomes will take care of themselves when we focus on ensuring we "do the right things right". We focus every day on ensuring high quality teaching and learning takes place in an inspiring and supportive environment so that ‘everyone achieves’.
We have developed strong links with many employers that are amongst the very best of any school in the country. We ensure that high achievement is underpinned by a wider education and all students are well prepared for their next steps.
I very much hope the website gives you a flavour of why we are very proud of our students.
Academy ‘Student Voice’ pupils represented the school at the Milton Keynes Youth Cabinet’s MySayMK Conference on Wednesday, 8th July, which brought together students and decision makers from across Milton Keynes.
Employers, teachers and students fielded questions from a packed audience recently at Milton Keynes Academy, about links between education and employers.
Seven lucky Year 8 boys have started the Boys2Men mentoring programme. The boys have half an hour of basketball or football before coming to the Enterprise Hub for a healthy breakfast! The downside is they have to be in school for 7.30am but so far the boys have felt this is a sacrifice worth making... The boys are mentored by students from Studio 6 who not only have sporting skills but are successful students which makes them excellent role models.
