Malcolm Arnold Academy

At Malcolm Arnold Academy we seek to broaden the horizons of each and every one of our students, helping them to achieve at the highest level both academically and in their talents outside the classroom.

Executive Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Malcolm Arnold Academy’s website, thank you for taking an interest in our school.

We are extremely lucky to have state of the art facilities, expert teachers and a wonderful student body who make up our MAA family. We have so much to be proud of, including our academic achievements, our focus on ambition and aspiration, our commitment to disruption-free classrooms and the wide and wonderful opportunities open to our young people.

We believe in the acquisition of powerful knowledge, delivered explicitly by teachers who are subject experts. Your child is so lucky to have access to the best that has been thought and said, through our rich curriculum which teaches subjects deeply, helping students to learn core knowledge and practice and apply what they have learnt.

We will ensure that students have a broad foundation of knowledge which is an inch deep and a mile wide, and a deeper understanding of key areas of each subject discipline which allows them to think critically in those subjects. Our ambition for our students is clear through our warm:strict approach to discipline, our high expectations of their approach to learning and our high aspirations for their futures. We will always aim high for each and every child.

We hope that you will enjoy exploring more of what we have to offer through this website, but we would love to meet you in person! Please email to book in for a tour!

Interim Principal's Welcome

It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the Head of Malcolm Arnold Academy. It is a privilege to have been appointed and entrusted with the job of leading the school.

At Malcolm Arnold Academy, we seek to bring together the best that the independent sector offers and the state education provides and we would love for you to come and visit to see what we can offer your child.
We are proud of our Christian ethos, our all-round high standards and our strong emphasis on ensuring our students are able to be the very best they can be. We believe students deserve the best education possible, ensuring we prepare them for the future in which they can thrive in their chosen career paths, in addition to becoming responsible, caring citizens.

What sets us apart from other schools is our exciting and varied enrichment programme, which we have designed to encourage every young person to explore new things, develop their passions and discover their talents. On visiting our Academy, please take a look at our music, cultural and sporting opportunities in which we are particularly proud of.

While our website offers you a flavour of what we have to offer, I encourage you to schedule an appointment and come and visit so we can show you all our opportunities we can offer your child.
