The Cedars Academy is part of the Lionheart Academies Trust. The Trust is led by Beauchamp College, which is steeped in traditions based on academic excellence and holistic development. These are both crucial ingredients in our recipe for success. The high standards and aspirations of our young people coupled with inspirational teaching means pupils at The Cedars Academy demonstrate exceptional achievement. We are proud of the fact that The Cedars Academy has been in the top third of schools in Leicestershire for Progress 8 and results at Key Stage 5 have been outstanding.
We want every pupil to feel challenged. We recognise that our brightest learners need opportunities to push them further. Whether this be through using our expertise of the GCSE and A-level curriculum or through working closely with our STEM partners on programmes which place a strong emphasis on exploring STEM career routes. We also work with the Brilliant Club, offering our most able pupils the opportunity to study with a University lecturer to complete a thesis, designed to inspire and prepare pupils to apply for Oxbridge and Russell Group universities.
We believe that the pupils at The Cedars Academy will make extensive progress. We will rigorously check that all pupils are making progress in their learning and intervene decisively to remove any barriers to achievement. We know that by working hard and aspiring to excellence in all we do, pupils will achieve the best possible outcomes and success. We are ambitious and aspirational for our staff and pupils; we believe passionately that every pupil will succeed and are committed to equality of opportunity.
We are committed to exacting high standards, raising attainment and demanding creative excellence from our staff and pupils. At the Cedars Academy we are driven to ensure pupil success is at the core of all our work. We provide a vibrant and engaging curriculum which promotes the love of learning, and prepares young people for the next steps in their lives. We are a driven institution where pupils’ success lies at the core of all planning. We are aspirational, bold and ambitious for pupils’ futures.
Over recent years considerable improvements have been made to large sections of the academy campus. The academy now benefits from a new main entrance building, which also includes the administration and pupil support blocks. Numerous teaching spaces within the academy campus have also benefitted from significant renovation and improvement work. These include: new Music classrooms and practice spaces, the renovation and re-fitting of the Humanities and Maths blocks and refurbishment of the PE and Curriculum Support blocks.
