My vision is that we do whatever it takes to ensure every student at John Madejski Academy achieves their full potential. I have extremely high expectations, and just as there are no shortcuts, there are no excuses.

The academy is at the start of a new chapter. Establishing excellence and demonstrating the highest expectations of behaviour, teaching and learning and leadership will be a non-negotiable and will support the Academy to become a better place for children to come to school.

We are committing ourselves to ensuring that the academy will provide a high quality education so that all students can succeed at university or a real alternative, thrive in a top job and have a great life.

My aim for the community at John Madejski Academy, which includes parents, pupils and staff, is, that we enjoy what we do together because we are resilient, remain positive and never give up; we aspire to be the best we can be, are loyal and reliable; we display empathy and are open-minded and treat all people fairly; we contribute to our school and community and it is a happy place to work, learn and visit.
