It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Pimlico Academy website.
Our motto, 'Libertas per cultum', embodies the reason we exist: we believe that education liberates, opens doors to our students that would otherwise stay closed, and sets them up for future success. Our core business is the daily delivery of a transformative education to all our students. Such an education is their birth-right, and we do not take our responsibility lightly.
That education is delivered in our classrooms every day by highly-skilled specialist teachers, whose infectious enthusiasm for their subjects is palpable. Our curriculum is broad, balanced and deliberately challenging, because we know that when the bar is set high, young people reach and often exceed it. And, in the event that they don’t, we are there to support them, scaffolding our teaching and encouraging them to see failure as a necessary part of learning and life. Knowledge is power and our curriculum is focused on teaching the very best that has been thought and said, globally and across the generations.
Education extends beyond what is taught in a classroom, and our rich co-curriculum offer is one of the distinctive characteristics of a Pimlico Academy education. By honing skills already acquired, having their presuppositions challenged, embracing fresh opportunities and facing new challenges, students have their horizons broadened, their experiences expanded, their cultural literacy increased and their personal development supported.
The world our students will step into when they leave us is full of opportunity. We want them to see that there is no limit to what they can achieve if they are willing to put in the hard slog. There will be obstacles in the road, but, having learned resilience and the value of perseverance, our students will take those in their stride.
A Pimlico Academy education means they will leave us ready to make the communities they live in better and brighter, ready to enrich the society they are part of, and ready to have a positive contribution to the world that is theirs for the taking.
Mr Tony Oulton
