Welcome to Sycamore Academy

Message from the Headteacher


As soon as you enter our school you will immediately know that you are in a very special place indeed. We have extremely high expectations for every child and adult. We insist that everyone works together to achieve outstanding successes. Everyone has equality of opportunity within our school.

Our school motto is: “Learning and Caring Together” which permeates through our whole-school ethos ensuring that we nurture enthusiasm and a thirst for knowledge. Working closely with families, we target and support individual needs to ensure exemplary outcomes for all our children.

We embrace change and relish new initiatives. Our children are taught explicitly and clearly yet provided with the necessary skills so that they leave our school as autonomous, competent, well-rounded, individuals. We tackle problems head on and equip our children to be confident, empathic and respectful members of society.

A Sycamore Child is one that: knows right from wrong, has pride in everything they do but is also able to compliment the achievements of others, excels in learning and has a real desire to continually improve regardless of the difficult barriers which may impede them.

Since joining L.E.A.D. Academy Trust, our school has blossomed beyond belief. The strong partnerships we have forged with our partner schools have strengthened and enhanced everything that we do.

Our journey to outstanding continues but we feel honoured no longer to be embarking on this alone. We are now a valued and active member of the highly successful L.E.A.D. Academy Trust.

I look forward to welcoming you to our exceptional school and sharing our passion for excellence.

Yours sincerely
