I am delighted City Academy Whitehawk has become the first Primary Academy in Brighton and Hove . We are also the first school to be sponsored by City College Brighton & Hove. City College was rated as outstanding by Ofsted inspectors in Leadership and Management, creating a culture of high expectations.
Our vision is for every child to fulfil their potential, in order to enhance their life chances. We want to work in partnership in order to create a culture of high aspirations where a commitment to and engagement in learning is the norm for every child.
On 27th January Miss Reynolds and I travelled to Buckingham Palace where we met the Private Secretary to the Duke of York. We enjoyed sharing our vision for the Academy and showing pictures of our many projects so far. We also talked over some new ideas for the future and the challenges we face as we strive to make the Academy an outstanding school. As a result we are working with a range of new partners who are helping us move forward to achieve our aims. It would be great to have a royal visit - I will keep you up to date with these exciting developments.
