A Message from the Head Teacher.

Dear Parent / Guardian

It is with great pleasure that I take over as head teacher of John Paul Academy. I am particularly pleased to take over such a great school that has made excellent gains in recent years and I can assure you that I fully intend for John Paul Academy to continue its journey to becoming the very best in the country.


Your child deserves the very best chance in life and I wholeheartedly believe that education is the bedrock on which this is built. Please be assured that John Paul Academy will continue to demand the high expectations of all its young people in all that they do and will strive to deliver the highest quality of teaching provision and personal support and success to each and every one of them.


Our patron, Saint John Paul said of the young,

The future is in your hearts and in your hands”.

This truth still resonates today and both myself and all the staff of the school will continue to ensure that every young person is nurtured, challenged and supported and can feel confident in being part of that future.


As in every school success is only achieved with the love and support of parents and carers and I look forward to working with you over the coming years.


Please do not hesitate to contact me at the school if you have any matter that you need addressed.

Yours sincerely

John McGhee

Head Teacher

Headteacher's welcome 
Headteacher's welcome

 

 Welcome to the John Paul Academy website. It will provide you with lots of interesting detail about the operation of our school and hopefully answer any questions you may have.

At John Paul Academy we have a core objective, that is, to make a unique difference to every individual within our community in order that they reach their highest potential. It is in working towards this end that we create an ethos of achievement that is conducive to high quality learning.

You will see that there are many clubs and extra-curricular activities for our learners to be involved in where they can develop relationships with both members of staff and their peers. It is through these quality relationships that we believe real learning, that will benefit young people for the rest of their lives, will take place.

Our partnerships with parents are critical as parents and carers are the primary educators and that is exactly why we would encourage you to contact us directly if you have any concerns or questions relating to the development of the young people.

We do hope you find our website interesting and helpful and look forward to working with you in the future.
