A very warm welcome to Magna Academy Poole.

Ours is a thriving learning community in which students, staff and parents are working together to ensure outstanding outcomes for our young people. Few schools have the potential of Magna Academy Poole. The buildings and facilities are state of the art and provide a wonderful platform for the high-quality education that will be delivered at the Academy.

We are a new school for a new age. We aspire to provide an outstanding education for the young people of Poole and we aim to ensure that not only our students but the people of Poole become proud of the Academy and its successes.

We are passionate about excellence in education, which means giving students the very best start in life with a firm belief that excellent teaching transforms lives.

As an Aspirations Academy, we want students to dream about their future and to do something in their present to reach those dreams. Our core belief is that, for all students to have high aspirations, they must:

  • believe in themselves,
  • be actively engaged in their learning and
  • see the connection between what they learn today and who they want to become tomorrow

At Magna Academy Poole, we blend traditional values within a very modern context. We establish the traditional values of respect and self-discipline and our students will wear their uniforms with pride. At the same time, we recognise that what engages this generation of learners is very different from what may have engaged previous generations. So, we will provide an environment that mirrors their lives and their futures – one that seamlessly integrates today’s digital tools, accommodates a digital lifestyle and encourages collaboration and teamwork in physical and virtual spaces.

By setting the highest expectations in terms of learning, behaviour, attendance and appearance, we will develop a sense of purpose and levels of self-esteem that naturally lead to aspiration, ambition and achievement. As a result, Magna Academy Poole will provide a happy, calm and confident environment in which students will make excellent progress and achieve strong exam results.

Our Academy has a very exciting future, with an ambitious vision to become outstanding in every respect.

To achieve this, we will place learning at the heart of everything we do, supporting and challenging one another to achieve our full potential. By providing an engaging curriculum, excellent teaching and a range of exciting opportunities beyond the classroom, we will promote a love of learning that benefits students throughout their lives.

Our aim is for students to leave with the knowledge, skills and self-assurance they need to be successful at university or in their chosen career. We are committed to the relentless pursuit of excellence; we will embrace change and no matter what the starting point, we are committed to providing the very best for every child.

If you haven't done so already, please consider visiting the Academy to experience for yourself its vibrant atmosphere and caring ethos, with a view to making an application to enrol your child.

I really look forward to meeting you.
