“Academy21 makes a huge difference to our students"

"For example, recently, a young boy joined us in year 10 with very high levels of anxiety. He could barely leave his home without suffering panic attacks. This made schooling impossible and he began to question whether school was a possibility for him at all. Despite this huge challenge, after just four months of learning with Academy21, he gained the confidence to join our onsite school for three or four hours a day. This is a huge win for us, and a giant step towards full time onsite education! Academy21 has changed his perspective on education and given him a reason to study and pursue his passions."

"The stimulating nature of the lessons Miss Perkins runs as well as her kindness, good nature and efficiency means that my daughter loves her lessons and actually looks forward to them.

I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to my daughter’s maths teacher, Ms Perkins, who leads a lesson at 2.15 every Mon - Thurs afternoon.

My daughter, xxxxx, has severe chronic fatigue and had missed 18 months of lessons prior to joining the academy. She was nervous about how she would cope and found it tricky at first as her resilience was low, but the stimulating nature of the lessons Miss Perkins runs as well as her kindness, good nature and efficiency means that my daughter loves her lessons and actually looks forward to them. Her confidence in maths is growing and she is making measurable progress."

"Academy21 has helped them enjoy their learning journey and reach the finish line with a smile of success on their faces.

[Without Academy21] many of our vulnerable kids would have left school with absolutely nothing! Instead, they were able to continue to engage with learning and leave with GCSEs. Rather than punishing these vulnerable students, with Academy21 we have been able to intervene and get to the root of their individual problems. As you can imagine, parents are so grateful for this opportunity to reignite their child’s passion for education and give them hope of a positive future. Of course, Ofsted loves it too!

While the expectation is for the Lucys, Vishals, Philips and Kaitlins of the world to slip through the cracks, Academy21 has helped them enjoy their learning journey and reach the finish line with a smile of success on their faces.”

"Thank you so much for my time at Academy21

It is always hard for me to get up on mornings, but I always look forward to my English lessons because of how polite and welcoming she is. She is not only a great teacher, but she is great at listening and an amazing person to talk to. She always offers advice and makes sure if we need help we can always ask her. Thank you so much for my time at Academy21, you are the one who made me enjoy it"

"Academy21 have been supportive and understanding...

"Academy21 have been supportive and understanding. They listen to suggestions from us as a school and understand that we have an understanding of our student. They have accepted that for this student completing the additional tasks can be challenging and so have worked with us to find ways to ensure that there is a balance. This has been a successful program and one that I hope will result in a student gaining 4 GCSE’s."

"Excellent lessons and made such an amazing difference in my daughter

I just wanted to thank all Academy21 staff for the excellent lessons you have given my daughter since March this year. It has made an amazing difference to Katy by helping her study again and be able to realise her potential.”

Linda

Parent

"Academy21 has been a fantastic resource to find

At a time when alternative provision providers are lacking in our authority, Academy21 has provided high quality provision in a range of subjects. We have students accessing the provision from year 7 to 11 and we have seen students on the brink if exclusion or school refusers, reengaging with their learning and progressing. The communication from set up, during lessons and regarding GCSEs is excellent and I would recommend to other schools."

"Reporting, Data and Breadth of Information

The reports for the students attendance, effort, understanding and interaction are easily accessible at the end of each day for each subject. I pull off weekly reports for each of my students. The data is easy to understand. Staff from Academy21 will always respond if you have a query about any of the data/information.

Term reports are also given which include comments from the teachers taking the classes. These are very helpful to see how a particular student is progressing."
