Malcolm Arnold Academy was established in September 2010, to broaden the horizons of its students by offering a world-class education and outstanding academic and co-curricular opportunities. The academy provides an innovative curriculum which aims to develop a culture of achievement. Students are given everything they need to achieve success. The academy was rated ‘Good with Outstanding Features’ in its most recent Ofsted Inspection.
In the inspection, the Ofsted team rated the behaviour and safety of the students and leadership within the academy as outstanding, and praised the "significantly improved” quality of teaching and achievement of pupils, rating them both as good.
The academy also has strong links with the Peterborogh Dicocese, and is proud of the rounded education we offer our students. The National Society recently completed their inspection of Malcolm Arnold and found that: "The academy has developed an inclusive and welcoming environment for all. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils and staff is paramount."
Since we became an academy in 2010, there have been lots of changes. See what our students have to say:
"Behaviour is outstanding. Students from different backgrounds work well together and feel safe."
