Welcome to Grove Academy

Grove Academy is the first all through school to open in Slough, offering pupils from the age of 4 to 18 a unique and exciting experience. Grove was established through a unique and innovative partnership involving the Slough Association of Secondary Headteachers (SASH). The aim of the SASH Education Trust is to provide a vibrant education for local pupils and Grove is at the centre of the strategy to ensure there is the widest possible curriculum choice for the young people of Slough.

The school is delivering a curriculum that focuses on making learning relevant and real, enriched with hands on experiences. A curriculum that encourages enterprise opportunities at all levels, enabling our pupils to be confident, responsible and active citizens of Slough. Our pupils are resilient and creative learners, able to apply their learning to real life situations.
Our pupils are happy and safe within a unique collaborative learning community where we learn from the best practises in both primary and secondary.

As a Slough resident I am very proud to be leading Grove Academy and to work with families to develop this new, amazing all through school. I am passionate about enabling children to take responsibility for their learning and I am looking forward to developing the Grove Academy vision into a learning community for local families to be proud of.

“We will deliver inspirational 21st century learning so our pupils leave school confident in their ability to succeed.”

One unique child

I believe that every one of our pupils is unique and on their own special learning journey. We therefore will focus on early communication with new parents to understand their child’s individual strengths and needs and maintain that close relationship with the family whilst their child is with us.

We are an inclusive school providing an education model that is able to adapt to a wide range of learning styles and needs. Our job is to remove all barriers that might prevent a child from achieving the best that they can. We will not let labels limit a child’s learning.

I am very excited about taking up this new challenge and feel privileged to be working with the families in Slough to develop this new, amazing, all through school. I live in Slough, have brought up my own children in this town and am keen to be a full member of the community. I am passionate about enabling children to take responsibility for their own learning and am looking forward to translating the Grove Academy vision into a learning community for local families, pupils and staff to be proud of.
