Our Mission, Values and Vision
‘We are a community that values learning, promotes kindness and strives for excellence in all we do.’
Good examination results go a long way to achieving our vision; however, we believe any school must achieve much more than that. We want students to flourish as confident, happy, responsible members of our community, to develop a life-long love of learning and be fully prepared for adult life.
We use the ‘Misbourne Way’ - Learning, Kindness, Excellence - as our guiding principles to reward positive behaviour for learning, leadership and community involvement. Students behave well in our school and wider community because we forge positive, respectful relationships underpinned by clear expectations and praise. On occasions when students might fall short of our expectations, students take responsibility for the consequences, supported by the use of restorative approaches to allow every lesson to be a fresh start.
About the school
Facilities at the academy are excellent. Set on the edge of a beautiful rural village, once home to the world-famous Roald Dahl, we have a modern building for the Sixth Form, English department, large café and training room; extensive playing fields; new IT suites, refurbished tennis courts and a brand-new sports centre for 2022. The Misbourne is at the heart of the local community.
