Executive Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Leigh Academy Blackheath

It gives me great pleasure and pride to welcome you to Leigh Academy Blackheath.   As Executive Principal I am really excited to have the opportunity to be involved in the creation of a brand new academy for ​our​ local community.

We are committed to working in partnership with students, staff, parents, carers and the Blackheath community to deliver a truly outstanding education in the widest possible sense.  We have an unshakeable belief in human potential and personal transformation ​, and are committed to ensuring that​ every ​student and staff-member has the provision and opportunities, support and challenge, to be the very best that they can be.

Students at Leigh Academy Blackheath will benefit from highly personalised curriculum pathways matched to their ability. We have high expectations for all in terms of academic performance, appearance, attitude and attendance. Achievements will be celebrated; perseverance and endeavour recognised. Our students will be known, valued and cared for as individuals; they will have the confidence to express ideas and opinions within a community that treats each other with respect and tolerance.

​We are proud to be part of the Leigh Academies Trust,​ and LAT’s South East London cluster. As such​ our young people have access to an extensive network of educational and enrichment opportunities which allow them to develop their interests as well as introduce them to new concepts​ and experiences​.   With a proven track record of sustained growth in academic and vocational success across the Trust, students, parents and carers know we deliver on our promise to provide high quality education and equip our young people with the skills and attributes they need to be successful in life.

I do hope you take the opportunity to​ visit us at one of our open events. I Iook forward to meeting you.
