It is my pleasure to introduce you to the Archer Academy, an outstanding community school which I am immensely proud to lead.

Our school is a close-knit community of high aspirations and high expectations in the heart of East Finchley. We are lucky enough to be able to offer our students two bespoke campuses with two distinct environments, ensuring that they receive the right kind of help and challenge at the right time.

As our students make their way through school, they are inspired and supported by a team of teachers who always have their best interests at heart. We work closely together to deliver an interesting, responsive curriculum, providing our students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the next stage of their lives.

“Leaders, staff and pupils work together to make the school a harmonious community. Pupils are respectful, courteous, and kind to each other.”

Ofsted, 2019

And because we believe that education does not stop when the bell rings, we also offer a huge range of extra opportunities outside the classroom, from twice-weekly enrichment courses and horizon-broadening trips to watching and taking part in all sorts of performances and competitions.

Our goal is to help our students become positive, thoughtful and skilled young people, with a zest for life and a generosity of spirit which will help them make the most of the opportunities ahead. We encourage and support them as they take risks, make some inevitable mistakes, and discover what they are all about.

You can get a sense of why Ofsted has graded us outstanding in all areas by exploring our website. But to really experience what life at the Archer Academy is like, do please come and visit us.
