Welcome from the Head Teacher

Welcome to Quarrydale Academy.

I hope you will find our new website informative and discover how we combine our traditional values with the very latest in teaching methods, which inspire our students to succeed in everything they do.

We have very high expectations of our students and place great emphasis on self-discipline, self-respect, hard work, achievement and high standards of behaviour.

The Education we offer.

The education we offer at Quarrydale is built around a highly qualified team of staff committed to delivering a quality education to all our students. Your child will enter a calm, safe and secure environment where high quality learning can effectively take place. We work in partnership with parents to ensure that every child receives the best possible education and takes pride in being part of our successful and caring community.

Develop a love of Learning

At Quarrydale we are committed to the pursuit of excellence, both in terms of the achievement of students and the quality of educational provision we deliver on a daily basis. We want to encourage all learners to develop a love of learning and enable everyone to reach the highest standards of which they are capable. This includes academic success as well as excellence in sport, arts and culture.  Students have to believe in themselves and strive for success. This includes accepting the need for the highest standards of uniform, behaviour, being ready to learn and having the correct equipment every day. Our expectations are high and this because we want our students to always achieve their best.

Self-belief, motivation, support

I believe that achievement is closely linked to self-belief and self-motivation. With support and encouragement students will excel and be proud of achieving and fulfilling their potential. However, the best achievements usually occur where a true partnership has been established between the student, school and home. All parties need to work together to strive for the best possible outcome.


Learn, achieve, maximise potential

I want every Quarrydale student to learn, achieve, maximise their potential and meet all of their aspirations and ambitions. Quarrydale students know that we expect nothing less than their personal best, and we will guide and support them to rise to that challenge.
