Vision and Values

At Coal Clough Academy, each member of staff is committed to providing the best education and opportunities for our students. At the heart of our school’s work is a commitment to high aspirations for all; for our students to be safe, happy and successful developing as individuals into caring, responsible citizens who participate fully in school life and are proud of their achievements. 

Every pupil at Coal Clough Academy is encouraged to have aspirational and ambitious goals and everybody is responsible for creating a culture of high expectations and success. Our vision as a school is to tackle social disadvantage through high expectations and personalised support. 

We are proud of our achievements – our examination success, our personal development programme, our charity work and our involvement in the community.  We are committed to the pursuit of outstanding teaching and learning alongside the highest possible academic, personal and moral standards. This commitment is built upon a shared belief in hard work, self-reflection and a culture of respect and support for others.
