Our Vision

High Expectations

We aim high and are determined that each of our students, regardless of background, will make the progress necessary to have a real choice when they leave us. They will be able to go on to further and higher education or pursue the career of their choice.

To have real choices young people need a high level of skills, good examination results, a strong work ethic and confidence. We have high expectations for academic achievement and a strong culture of courteous conduct.


We offer a broad and balanced curriculum that promotes both academic study and the wider skills that higher education providers and employers tell us they need. Students enjoy their lessons and are motivated to do well.

Great teaching and learning drives everything we do. Lessons are exciting, creative and thoroughly planned with challenging work, independent learning and a rigorous assessment system which measures student progress every half term.

Support for the whole person: academic, social and emotional

We are committed to providing an excellent education for all. We do this through rigorous and engaging classes as well as providing a variety of learning experiences outside of the Academy day. We expose our young people to the range of opportunities that life has to offer. We create a nurturing environment that supports the personal development of each young person and ensures that every person is cared for. The pastoral system is in five houses each consisting of seven vertically aged tutor groups.

Education Network

All Saints is part of the Plymouth Learning Partnership and also the PLE for post-16 learning. We are accredited to Career Ready, a UK wide charity linking employers with schools and colleges to open up the world of work to young people, and we also work with the Real Ideas Organisation to support social enterprise.

As a Church of England academy we link with other church schools regionally and nationally, benefiting from the resources and expertise that these networks bring.
