Important Parent Updates

Dear Parent,

I hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful summer break and that your son/ daughter is beginning this new academic year feeling refreshed and ready to achieve.  I feel certain that by continuing to work together we will ensure that this year sees the Academy continue to progress in all that it does. Whilst I am on the theme of working together, I would like to thank you all for your support and understanding re the recent ban on deodorant sprays.

I am thrilled to announce that this summer's results saw the Academy above the floor target for the two key government measures: students' combined A*- C attainment in English and maths, as well as the new Progress 8 measure.  Reassuringly, we achieved what we predicted showing how well we know our school.  One of the things that Top Valley has always prided itself on is our inclusive attitude, meaning we embrace students with a wide range of abilities from high to low (and in some cases very low). Top line results can often be misleading; however when these things are factored in our successes become far more apparent.

As we start this new academic year, we of course do so with our new sponsor, the Redhill Academy Trust, and I look forward to the growth that this will bring.  It goes without saying that the focus will, as ever, be on continuing to improve examination success for our students.  In order to do this the Academy will now become more efficient in a number of key ways, one of which is the use of our website to keep parents informed of developments.  Therefore can I please ask you to check our website for all of the following parent updates:

We do of course appreciate that not everyone has internet access so if you would prefer to receive paper copies of the above updates please do not hesitate to contact the school reception to request these.

Finally, you will be pleased to hear that the Academy is now almost full; this is in addition to having a full staff complement.  We are receiving fantastic support from the Redhill Academy Trust and our new build is on track, all of which suggests that the Academy will continue to flourish both this year and next.

I look forward to keeping you updated about all of our positive achievements.

Yours sincerely


S Kelly
