Yate Academy

Ethos & Values

A better chance of success 

At Yate Academy, we have built our ethos on a strong set of core values which underpin everything that we do. Our aim is to give students at Yate Academy a better chance of success than if they attended any other school in the country.

Ambition, excellence and pride run through all aspects of school life. 

We have a strong desire and determination to achieve success. We believe there are no limits to what can be achieved. We do what it takes for as long as it takes. In other words, we go for it every day! 

We strive for greatness in everything we set our minds to. We endeavour to do our very best and excel in all aspects of school life. 

We are ‘fiercely’ proud of ourselves, our school, our community and our Trust. We hold our heads high and feel a sense of togetherness and joy in our school.

Diversity and equality

As a school, we are determined to be anti-racist and promote diversity and equality. In light of recent events we have put together some materials that we think our students will find useful:
