New Rickstones Academy

About Us

New Rickstones Academy is a key member of Academies Enterprise Trust (AET), the operational arm of the Greensward Charitable Trust, which is a federation of academies created to provide thousands of students/pupils with the best possible education.

AET aims to provide the opportunity for all young learners to fulfil their real potential, broaden their horizons and become active, prosperous and successful citizens in the world around them. AET believes that all young people deserve to become world class learners - to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment, with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up to date resources available to them.

AET is committed to doing everything it can to ensure that young people are able to, in the future, compete on the world stage with the skills, confidence and flair to generate new ideas, new initiatives and thereby make a full contribution to tomorrow's world.

Our Mission Statement

Our ambition is to ensure that our students have every opportunity to fulfil their potential, broaden their horizons and become active, prosperous and successful citizens in the world around them.

Rupert Gather – Chair of AET

we aim to:

  1. realise the potential of every individual
  2. celebrate the whole child
  3. focus continuously on learning and teaching
  4. maintain a perpetual cycle of monitoring, evaluation and review

  8. build partnerships within and across the school community
  9. share structures, systems and procedures
  10. identify and share innovation and best practice

The Academies Enterprise Trust was established in September 2008. We are fortunate to have a team of talented and experienced leaders who come together to form both the AET Board and the Executive Team and, with over thirty years of hands-on professional experience, align themselves with our educational values.

“The AET is committed to developing Academies that focus on outstanding performance. Set out below are the criteria for success which we will use to drive their development.”

We will enable the children and young people who prepare for and attend our Academies to participate, with their parents or carers and wider families, in learning and developing skills and attributes necessary to participate fully in the local, regional, national and emerging global economies, whilst maintaining a sense of place, citizenship and commitment in their community, developing their environmental and social responsibility, where all will see the United Kingdom as a great place to live, work, and visit.
