The Pioneers Academy


    At Pioneers Academy we believe that the curriculum is the key driver of progress for all students. Upon leaving the school we expect Pioneer students to be articulate, well-rounded and well-educated young women who understand the importance of our core values. The curriculum will enable all learners to become independent thinkers with the confidence and resilience to thrive in the 21st century.

    Success at Pioneers rests on three core pillars:

    Achievement through the taught curriculum

    Enjoyment through the enriched curriculum

    Personal development through our shared values

    • The curriculum will have a general ethos of embracing challenge, high expectations and deeper learning.

    • Learning will often go beyond the specification and challenge students to think tangentially.

    • Departments will provide a broad and creative curriculum which regularly interleaves prior learning into current learning.

    • Students will regularly contribute excellent ideas and questions in class, where there is an overwhelming culture of  academic achievement; aspiration is seen as the norm.

    • Students will have access to a varied range of extra-curricular clubs, groups and teams, both within and beyond the core day.

    • Through student leadership and council, students will offer reasoned views about moral and ethical issues.

    • Students will take pride in representing their school at all levels.


    • Honesty will drive students'’ sense of a moral purpose and encourage clarity of thought and deed.

    •Diligence will drive students’ collective understanding of the benefits to be derived from hard work and collaboration.

    •Kindness will improve students’ understanding of different faiths, cultures and orientations.
