WELCOME from the


Welcome to our website. At Tong Leadership Academy, we believe that every child deserves to maximise their potential, regardless of their starting point, background or personal circumstances. We are proud of our diverse and inclusive community and we endeavour to ensure that all our pupils are safe, happy and well here.

Through our commitment to educational excellence, character development and service to communities, we encourage our pupils to do more and be more, not only for the purpose of their own personal growth, but also for the benefit of others. We want all of our pupils to make a positive contribution to their communities and play a proactive and productive role in society, and we encourage them to live by our STAR values of Service, Teamwork, Ambition and Respect. These values are the cohesion that brings – and bonds – the academy together, and they reflect our aim to ensure that the progress and improvement made by pupils during their time at Tong is second to none, whilst also emphasising the importance of good character, making the right choices, and working together for success.

We are acutely aware that, in the current economic climate, our pupils need to stand out from the crowd in order to secure the best jobs and the best places at college and university, which is why we have built a leadership specialism into our curriculum and wider enrichment activities. This gives our pupils the opportunity to develop their performance, civic and moral leadership skills, along with the entrepreneurial spirit, knowledge and attributes sought by top universities and employers. We are fortunate to have built some very exciting links with external partners who can work with us to enrich the leadership curriculum, and our academy also benefits from an enhanced learning environment, where pupils enjoy access to cutting-edge technology and facilities.

As part of a vibrant family of schools within Star Academies, we strive to deliver an outstanding quality of education, creating a culture where everyone thrives on the challenge of achieving and improving every day. We would like to invite you to be a part of this culture and share in our vision to nurture today’s young people and inspire tomorrow’s leaders.
