Welcome to the University of Portsmouth Academy Trust


Every school and college in the Trust will be a place where each individual student feels they truly belong. A safe, respectful learning community where diversity is celebrated and all voices valued. A community where everyone enjoys opportunity and choice in their learning and development. In which resilience is fostered and the drive to develop is nurtured. We will never give up on anyone.


We’ll offer every student space and time to develop and express their own identity, as they seek and make meaning of the world. The foundation for growth is our confidence that everyone in our community has capability and competence. We promote a range of learning and development styles, encouraging all kinds of learners to harness their own unique intelligence and find their niche.


A culture of innovation will be underpinned by ambition – to always achieve more for our whole community. We will foster creative approaches to learning and development. We’ll promote important qualities of perseverance, independence and autonomy. Our students will communicate openly, listen with empathy, think flexibly and critically, manage impulsivity and strive for accuracy.
