Dear Parents

Welcome to the Tarleton Academy website.

I have always believed that there are few, if any jobs that are more important or rewarding as teaching. To be the Head of School of such a fantastic student and staff body, in the centre of such a warm and supportive wider community is a great privilege.

On a daily basis we pride ourselves in being a vibrant community that pulls together to ensure we get the balance right between nurture and support and stretch and challenge, so that all of us can dream big to make those aspirations a reality.

At Tarleton we believe that every student should receive the same consideration that we would want for our own children. We believe in clear boundaries, high aspirations, creative solutions and the genuine enjoyment that comes from the joy of learning and the pride of achievement and success.

Pastoral support is therefore also a priority here. It is essential that all of our students know they are significant for who they are and who they can become on an individual level. We place considerable emphasis on developing the foundations of personal achievement, vibrant health and well-being, creativity and individuality. Our intention is to help our young people grow to become outstanding, independent, resilient and effective young adults, ready to embrace the challenges of an uncertain 21st Century world.

I hope you find this section of the school's website informative and we would welcome any feedback on how we could improve it further.

Mr Cunniffe

Head of School
