About us

The Archer Academy is a close-knit community secondary, founded by a team of individuals who had a vision for how good a mixed, non-selective school could be, and a determination to bring it to life.

Vision and values

Our school is built on a clear, three-fold vision, supported by the values of the Archer Way.


“The quality of teaching is routinely strong. This, combined with an effective curriculum and pupils’ excellent attitudes to learning helps pupils to succeed.”
Ofsted, 2019


Our 2019 Ofsted report graded us as outstanding in all areas. It is a glowing summary of everything that makes our school an exceptional place to learn and grow.

GCSE results

Our students make progress well above national expectations and score excellent results at GCSE, putting us consistently in the top 10% of UK schools.

Sixth form provision

We have a strategic partnership with Woodhouse College, which delivers an automatic 11-18 pathway for the majority of our students. We have also seen students accepted into a wide range of other popular school sixth forms and colleges.
