Welcome to The Excel Academy

Welcome to the Excel Academy which is, for the second year running, one of the highest performing secondary academies in Stoke-on-Trent.  In 2014 almost 60% of our students left the Academy with 5A*-C grades including English & Maths at GCSE level.  More importantly 29% of Excel students achieved the ‘gold standard’ EBacc qualification which allows them to access the best post-16 courses and ultimately admission to the UK’S top universities.  This figure is well above the national average of 24% and significantly higher than all other local schools, including Endon High School (28%), Horizon Academy (14%), The Cooperative Academy (12%) and Haywood Academy (8%).

Mr John Patino - Executive Principal

We are confidently predicting even better results in 2015 and we are also delighted that many of our current Year 11 students have already decided to continue their post-16 studies at our brand new Excel Further post-16 centre which opens in September.  Working in partnership with our Studio College, we are offering a range of A Levels and vocational qualifications designed to take students to the next stage of their education and on to university or apprenticeships.

I am pleased to report that our new Year 7 intake in September will be the highest number for several years, further evidence that the reputation of the Excel Academy is now firmly established amongst parents and students.  However, the Excel Academy is not solely focused on academic achievement but excellence in every respect.  Our long tradition of success in the sporting arena was maintained recently when our Year 7 girls athletics team were crowned Staffordshire champions at the prestigious Winter Games event at Fenton Manor.  Meanwhile our singers and dancers perform regularly at the Victoria Hall and other key venues. 

The beginning of 2015 has been a very successful period for the Excel Academy and I am sure there will be many more achievements and successes to report on in the coming months.

If you are considering choosing the Academy for your child or would like to come and have a look around please contact us on 01782 882700
