Executive Principal of The Canterbury Academy Trust – Jon Watson

The Canterbury Academy Trust consists of ‘schools for all the talents’. Our key beliefs which underpin and drive all we do are simple. We believe that every learner matters and that every child is good at something – that all children walk with genius – and that school should be the place where children discover and build upon their own individual talents.

We believe in the comprehensive ideal. We believe that all talents should be valued. We believe that academic excellence is important but that there are also other important things. We believe that art, music, drama, sport, practical skills, being a good person, caring for and working with others are all valuable.

We believe in team work and that all of our students should have pride in themselves and their contribution to their school.

Our aim is to provide ‘as much as possible, as often as possible, for as many as possible’. We believe that education and learning can be fun. At the end of their time with us we aim for all our students to leave as happy, positive, confident individuals, proud of what they have achieved, prepared to be life-long learners and ready to play an active and constructive part in society.

We believe that children begin to learn about the world around them, from the moment they are born. We provide care and education to help the children to build upon this learning, by providing activities that are suitable for their individual age and stage of development.
