I am extremely proud to be the Principal here at Sutton Community Academy. I am committed to working with the staff, students and the local community together with our Trust, to transform learning, aspirations and opportunities for our students and the community in which they live. Despite this uniquely challenging year with Covid-19, our best ever “A” Level results have seen even more students become the first in their family to attend university, whilst others have begun apprenticeships or started their journey into employment. Our students are well prepared to be in control of their own destiny and we are delighted that this year, those destinations include Oxbridge.
We believe that every child matters and deserves a first class education. We believe everyone has hidden potential to be uncovered and nurtured.
Here at Sutton Community Academy, our vision of transforming lives includes:
- Creating a culture of high expectations, raising of standards and improving the core skills of all students
- Having a clear sense of purpose with students who are given the drive and ambition to succeed
- Teachers trained to bring out the best in every student
- Using experts from our Trust to support rapid progress and implementing improvement plans where needed
- A firm emphasis on good behaviour so that the environment we provide is calm and orderly for all students and our staff
- High expectations of smart uniform, attendance, punctuality and excellent manners.
I look forward to the opportunity of meeting and working with you to ensure your child receives the best possible chance of being successful, confident and ambitious.
Mr Patrick Butterell
