Welcome to The Milton Keynes Academy

Milton Keynes Academy is still the fastest improving school in Milton Keynes in 2014. Team MKA is going from strength to strength, achieving a further increase in higher grades at GCSE in summer 2013. Principal Dara Carroll is delighted with the continual transformation and sees a bright future for the Academy.

“I am pleased to report to parents and prospective students that there is a very positive learning climate in the Academy, students are happy and working hard and we have recruited top practitioners to create a formidable staff team capable of delivering the high standards the children deserve. We continue to be the most improved school in Milton Keynes in 2014 and I predict another step forward in performance this year “

Exam results 2014

Key Stage 4 Attainment

There was a great deal of change in the way results were calculated this year, with Ofsted and the DfE agreeing that it is unfair to compare the 2014 results with previous years. Nonetheless, The Academy was delighted with the high numbers of students making expected progress or better in English, and Mathematics . For the first time ever, this proportion was above the MK average and national average for both these subjects. In addition, in relation to value added progress measures, the Academy was celebrating the outcome in Science, which placed the school in the top 6% of school nationally.

Updates to The Curriculum

We are committed to developing a modern world-class curriculum that inspires and challenges all learners and prepares them for life and work in the 21st century, having a balance of knowledge and skills.

 The curriculum should enable all young people to become:

successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve

confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives

responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society

 The curriculum is driven by the needs of our learners and therefore has ‘moral purpose’.  There is a good balance between academic and vocational subjects and clear progression routes.
