Vision and Values

Willoughby Academy subscribes to the Priory Federation of Academies Trust’s overarching Ethos structure that sets out its expectations for pupils, staff and the organisation. 


The Trust’s and Academy’s Mission is ambitious for every pupil: to improve life chances and so create true citizens of the world. It forms the basis on which decisions across the Academy are made. 

The Trust and Academy has a well-defined set of values: wisdom, curiosity, generosity, courage and passion. 

Willoughby has adopted these values to suit our context.

These values support the development of Willoughby's vision to inspire every child to achieve excellence in their learning and personal development in a happy and safe environment. By offering a balanced mastery curriculum with a focus on developing communication, independence, skills for living and skills for life, we ensure each child can excel and reach their full potential and are well equipped and prepared for the next stage of their education and adulthood.
