Collaborating For


Welcome to The Aylesbury Vale Academy.  This is a school where we aim to go beyond the expected to ensure that students' life chances are enhanced.

We are proud of our non-selective, fully inclusive status and believe that children and young people, regardless of their background, ability or circumstances can thrive and succeed here.

As a large all-through school, we can offer learners an ambitious range of opportunities beyond the classroom. We place significant importance on academic excellence through high expectations but value, just as highly, the wide range of experiences learners can access. It is this balance which helps to ensure that learners are fully rounded individuals who can make a positive contribution to society.

In order to enhance the life chances of all the learners we serve at AVA we will:

  1. Deliver a broad, ambitious and rich curriculum, going beyond the expected.
  2. Close all gaps between the performance of different groups of learners.
  3. Inspire attendance to be consistently above the national average.
  4. Empower learners by developing their character so that they have excellent attitudes to their learning, becoming confident and resilient.
  5. Ensure our teaching is grounded in high expectations so that learners achieve exceptionally well.
