At The Grangefield Academy our focus is on providing every student with the opportunity to reach their highest potential with all the support and encouragement they need to be fully engaged with their learning.
We want our students to learn how to work with others and we want them to develop and practice their leadership skills. We work closely with individual students to identify specific opportunities to do this. We believe that the key to unlocking student potential lies in the development of enquiring minds that are keen to explore the world around them. Leadership across The Grangefield Academy is essential in enabling our students to realise their full potential.
