Striving for




Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Aston Academy – An 11-18 school in the ACET trust which sits at the heart of a friendly, hard-working and proud community.

At Aston Academy, we believe that education has the power to transform lives and improve the life chances of our young people.

‘Be Exceptional’ is our vision.

We want to bring this vision to life by raising the bar and adopting a growth mindset, which allows every student to feel empowered through acquiring a passport of skills, experiences and qualifications which allows them to lead successful lives, and have the confidence to compete at a world-class level.

As a parent myself, I fully appreciate the wishes of parents and carers to have happy, healthy children who get the ‘best deal’ in terms of secondary education – expert teaching; academic support; positive discipline; cultural capital; careers education; character education; enrichment opportunities; all underpinned by high quality pastoral support.

At Aston Academy, we are on a journey driving consistently high standards across all areas and demanding the absolute best for our students, our staff and the wider community. Therefore, we have high expectations for student attendance, punctuality, uniform/presentation and conduct – these are the key characteristics for life-long success, and we value the importance of embedding these positive habits in all our students.

Through our partnership with the local and wider community, we aim to support our students in successfully taking their place in society.

All staff in the academy have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the well-being of children.

‘We look forward to working in partnership with you on this exciting journey ahead’.

Thank you for visiting the Aston Academy website – I hope this gives you an insight into our forward-looking academy.

Best wishes

Mrs Saeed
