Welcome to the Cedars Academy! We are part of the Lionheart Academies Trust, a Leicestershire-based Multi Academies Trust steeped in traditions of academic excellence and holistic development. We are extremely proud of the high standards and aspirations of our young people which, coupled with inspirational teaching, means pupils show a positive attitude to their learning. Through working hard and aspiring to excellence, we achieve the best possible outcomes for our pupils. It is these high standards that have placed the Cedars Academy in the top third of schools in Leicestershire for Progress 8.
We want every pupil to aspire to excellence. We recognise that our aspirational learners need opportunities to progress. Whether this be through inspirational teaching 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 to complete a thesis, designed to inspire and prepare pupils to apply for prestigious universities. It is these high standards which lead to attainment in all areas.
At the Cedars Academy, we seek to remove any barriers to attainment. Inspirational teaching allows students to make progress in their learning, whilst our high standards ensure pupils achieve the best possible outcomes and success. We are ambitious and aspirational for our staff and pupils; we believe that by working hard and aspiring to excellence in all that we do, each and every pupil will succeed
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.
At the Cedars Academy, our mission is for pupils, regardless of their backgrounds, to make outstanding progress. We are committed to exacting high standards, raising attainment and demanding creative excellence. Moreover, inspirational teaching, coupled with vibrant and exciting extra-curricular opportunities, ensures our pupils aspire to excellence in all that they do. These key values put pupil success at the core of our work.

Dear Parent/Carer Thank you for your continued support during these changing times.
This is to update you on what we are doing as an Academy to keep everyone in our community safe.
We are postponing all parents evenings and performances, lesson six and extra-curricular/sporting activities until we have clearer guidance on social distancing.
If your child is in receipt of free school meals we are currently looking at what we can provide should we have to close the Academy; as soon as we have confirmation of what we are able to do we will be in touch with individuals it concerns.
Detentions will not run after school but will be held at lunchtime and the internal exclusion facility will be open 9.00am – 3.00pm; new information should this be relevant to you and your young person will be given when required.
Please don't worry about examinations, pupils should continue to prepare as normal and we will send updates as we receive them. Please can you support us by reminding your child about hand washing, hygiene and sensible social distancing.
Please remember that personal hygiene is advised as the most important way we can tackle COVID-19. Also, a reminder of the symptoms to look out for:
However, please note that these symptoms do not necessarily mean they have the illness. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.
The following NHS website can provide general advice:
We know this is a difficult situation and by working together as a community we can make a difference.
