A message from Stephen Moon MSc, the Principal.
Tollbar continues to be one of the highest performing schools in the country. In November 2013, Ofsted, once again, rated Tollbar Academy as outstanding, and in all categories. Inspectors said, 'excellent leadership combined with extremely skilled and dedicated teaching have ensured that the school's high performance has been sustained'.
I am extremely proud of the success of our students and proud of the staff who are dedicated to achieving the highest level of support, teaching and resources in an outstanding environment.
This success is underpinned by the support of parents and carers who work hard with the Academy and their children to achieve the highest possible standards.
The education system is one of constant change. To maintain our high standards and expectations we regularly review our curriculum, staffing and resources in response to local and national developments.
What does not change, however, and will not change, is our well-established ethos here at Tollbar - hard work, good behaviour, examination success, responsibility, uniform, homework and consideration for others, delivered through an entrepreneurial and business-like approach to all we do. We also continue to be determined that each of our students will be given every opportunity to acquire and extend the basic skills so necessary for the world of work and higher education.
Please take time to visit every corner of the website to get an idea of the tremendous opportunities that can now be offered to all who join 'Team Tollbar'. If you would like to find out more, call the Academy any time (on 01472 500 505) and come and see for yourself what Tollbar stands for.
