Headteacher’s Message

martyn joblingWelcome to the website for The Farnborough Academy. I hope that you find it informative. With a brief exploration you should be able to find the latest news from the academy, information about courses and subjects, academy newsletters and other academy information. Please do have a browse.

The Farnborough Academy is an exciting place to be. The academy opened in September 2014 and officially became part of the Spencer Academies Trust in October 2018. This has enabled the academy to access tailored support to ensure improvement. We are very proud of how rapidly the quality of teaching and the behaviour of pupils has improved and we are developing an academy that the pupils can be very proud of.

We work closely with members of the local community in order to develop, grow and improve the life chances of the young people in the community we serve.

We are a small but growing academy and we are sure you will be amazed by what you witness if you come and visit.


As an academy we have three core values:


We support students to gain high levels of academic achievement.

We help them prepare for future life through a unique and exceptional careers programme.

We work with stakeholders to develop links with the local community so we can work together to improve the life chances of young people in Clifton.                                                                                                                                      


We have high aspirations for our students and believe we can support them to achieve their full potential, with this comes a culture of high expectations for students and staff.

We work with students and staff to help develop positive mental health and well being alongside positive self esteem.

We work with students and staff to develop resilience and help them to overcome setbacks when they occur.


We expect all stakeholders to have high levels of attendance and punctuality so that they can be successful.

We expect all stakeholders to develop and display positive behaviours for learning.

We expect high levels of effort at all times from all stakeholders.


We always welcome visitors to the academy to see what is happening on a day to day basis or you can keep up to date with the latest on academy life by following my blog. If you wish to visit and have a tour then please contact my PA, Charlotte Feder, at the academy on 0115 974 4444.
