Part of The Shared Learning Trust, a family of schools in Bedfordshire About The Vale Academy

We provide a healthy, safe and caring environment, with excellent teaching and learning and a focus on exceptional student behaviour and attainment. We have high expectations of all our pupils, who are nurtured in this positive, supportive and friendly atmosphere.   

Our classrooms are large and spacious while being equipped with the latest ICT learning aids including interactive whiteboards and digital projectors. 

Our vision is to help all of our children develop lively, enquiring minds through teaching in small class sizes, a tailored approach to learning and an emphasis on life skills, including the importance of courtesy and respect. 

Our promise is ‘to provide the stepping stones that nurture, develop and inspire every child’s journey’. 

As part of The Shared Learning Trust, our students have access to state-of-the-art facilities, numerous extra-curricular activities and a seamless progression to the wider Trust all-through educational model in addition to our own eight-acre site for outdoor learning.
