Our Academy

Principal’s Welcome

Dear Parents, Carers and future students,

Welcome to Queen Katharine Academy. I am delighted you would like to know more about our school. I take great pride in leading an inclusive centre of educational excellence, rooted in the communities we serve. It is important that we provide an education that transforms lives and gives all our children the opportunities they deserve, regardless of where they are from, or their personal starting point. We want our students to learn how to change their own lives and those of others, to change the future, to shape society and the world.

Schools are only as strong as the bond between parents, carers, students and staff and so we always seek effective, mutually beneficial and long-lasting partnerships; we know these will ensure our students can thrive and become their very best. As a result, we have high expectations of everyone connected to our school, based on our guiding principle of RESPECT.

Of equal importance are our professional partnerships and we are proud to be part of the Thomas Deacon Education Trust, like us ‘dedicated to raising educational outcomes across a range of primary and secondary phase schools and academies in Peterborough.’ This locally-based Trust allows us to share expertise with a variety of like-minded schools and ensures we provide the best opportunities for our students.

We ensure young people receive a broad and balanced education, through intelligent and innovative curriculum design. This is further supported by a variety of high quality enrichment opportunities offered throughout the school from years 7-14. We also care deeply about the well-being of the young people, and support students through skilled, committed and experienced pastoral teams.

I believe Queen Katharine Academy is a special place, made so by the people who learn and teach here. I invite you to come and see what makes it unique for yourselves. Please contact Jackie Dowds to arrange a visit.

Yours sincerely,

Lynn Mayes
