The Trust have strongly advised that staff and students in school should wear face coverings when not in the classroom. We are encouraging students and staff to wear a masks in social and communal indoor areas from Thursday leading to this being mandatory from Monday.

Students are expected to bring their own (appropriate designed) mask into the academy but will be provided with a clear bag for storage in tutor time on Monday. (Bandanas and scarfs will not be accepted)

Thank you all for your continued support during this challenging time.

Welcome, join us on a journey through our inspirational building

Welcome to Sirius Academy West

Sirius Academy West is an inclusive and ambitious educational community that delivers a high quality, engaging and innovative learning experience tailored to suit the individual needs of our pupils, prioritising their holistic academic and interpersonal development. At Sirius West we encourage intellectual curiosity, constructive scholastic discourse and the pursuit of excellence in every endeavour. Through our state-of-the-art facilities, expert teachers and collaborative approach to learning our students leave us ready to make the seamless transition to further education, training or employment, securing purposeful, gratifying future vocations.

However, our pursuit of excellence is not wholly consigned to the academic. We place substantial importance on developing resilient, emotionally literate and professional young adults. Our ethos: RESPECT typifies the values we expect every student to exhibit. Respecting each other, their environment and their education, to name but a few of our core values. This social and emotional development is supported and enabled by an exciting enrichment programme that offers pupils opportunities to learn new skills and participate in a wide range of learning taking them beyond our curriculum and the classroom. Our ‘pledges’ promote self-reflection, soft-skill development and enhanced cultural capital together with offering students great opportunities to develop into confident young citizens keen to contribute to their community.

Developing a cohesive bond between home and school is of utmost importance to us. If we share a continuity and consistency of message our children have a significantly increased chance of success. We look forward to an enjoyable and fulfilling relationship with you in the coming years as we work closely together in pursuit of this goal. We trust that parents, guardians and carers will engage fully with all aspects of Academy life and we welcome your comments and feedback.

Sirius Academy West... where stars are born.
