Headteacher’s Welcome

Our mission and culture

I am pleased to welcome you to the All Saints Academy, Plymouth website.  Our mission is simple: All Saints Academy ensures that every student is well-educated, prepared for the future and is able to live life to the full

The mission is underpinned by four values. They are:

Faith – Putting Christian faith at the heart of every action and ensuring a safe environment and caring ethos for all.

Foundations – Providing strong foundations in learning, behaviour and success for all.

Family – Understanding the importance of family, the value of community and support for all.

Futures – Preparing for bright futures shaped from excellent progress, achievement and choice for all.

Our four values ensures that all of our students are developed during their time here at the academy, academically, socially, morally and spiritually.

We also have mantras which we ask all of our school community and stakeholders to live by.  They are: ‘together we succeed’, ‘work hard, be kind’ and ‘no excuses’. We have these mantras to achieve the very best in all that we do.  You can find out more about our mantras on this page.

We have excellent new purpose built facilities here which students use. We are the only Church of England secondary academy in Plymouth and are committed to educating students of the Christian faith, those who belong to other faiths and those who subscribe to no faith. We are a small friendly school, with hard working and dedicated staff. We have the highest expectations of our students here and ensure they go on to achieve their best. We do not accept excuses for not committing to the All Saints’ mission and that is what helps students succeed. We believe in traditional values such as good manners, behaviour and respect and have systems in place to teach our students this. We ask our students daily to ‘work hard, be kind’ as we know this will help them succeed in life.

We were inspected in May 2019 by the Church inspection team and they graded us as a good school in all areas. We are part of the Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust which allows partnership working for the benefit of all of our students with other schools in Devon.

I hope this website begins to give you a flavour of the atmosphere here at All Saints.  I also update my video blog every week, with the latest news and updates from the academy.  You can view this by clicking here: Head’s Blog
