Meet the Head

Welcome to The Streetly Academy, a 1550 strong, 11 - 18 Sports College in the heart of the community. Streetly enjoys an enviable reputation as a school that not only produces high levels of academic achievement, but also focusses on developing rounded and grounded young people. 

There are 2 things that drive us at The Streetly Academy, Values and Achievement. We have adopted the Olympic Values that sit at the very centre of everything we do. Personal Excellence, Respect and Friendship, Inspiration, Determination and Courage, and Equality (PRIDE) are values that are universally shared, and help our students maximise their achievement. Not only are we proud of our results, we are equally proud of our well-mannered, helpful, and well-presented students.
