Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Principal's Welcome

I am incredibly proud to be the Principal of such a vibrant and progressive Academy that works hand in hand with its community to ensure that our students develop the right character whilst they are in our care.

Our ethos is built firmly on our pillars of the community: mutual respect, pride, creativity, resilience, ambition and an atmosphere which regards the whole community as our family.

Our aim is to develop open-minded, flexible, resilient young people who can be successful in modern Britain and contribute positively as global citizens.

The curriculum students will enjoy whilst at Lister Park enables students to progress to the top universities and apprenticeship programmes, but I firmly believe in balance and the emphasis we place on arts and practical subjects allows all our students to have successful outcomes and develop their areas of interest and excellence through a comprehensive extra-curricular programme.

I am passionate about the potential of each and every one of our students and the community we serve and look forward to working with you and your child over the coming years.

Ian Simpson
