Mission Statement

‘Individually we grow, together we thrive’


At Greengate Lane Academy our aim is for all children to be happy and successful. We strive to develop independent and confident young people who want to learn and achieve their best – but also respect and have an understanding of others and the world around them. We develop this through high expectations, excellent teaching and an ambitious, well thought-out curriculum.

Through our ambitious curriculum, children are equipped with the characteristics of effective learning and skills to acquire knowledge. They flourish in their academic, social, moral and spiritual development.

Learning at Greengate Lane fosters curiosity, develops key life skills, promotes enquiring minds and encourages a love of learning. Children are encouraged to explore with confidence and strive for excellence through effort, practise and perseverance.

We celebrate diversity and uniqueness, and foster an environment of care, support and inclusivity.  We recognise we are stronger together and are proud to belong to our school community. We encourage children to be responsible and provide opportunities to ensure they are well prepared for the future.

Children are actively involved in making decisions through school council and pupil voice; leadership is encouraged through cross phase collaboration. We champion success in sport at all levels, giving a wide range of opportunity for our children to be involved in sport within the community.

Our school is a caring place where children and adults make valuable contributions and are inspired to think for themselves and feel confident to meet new challenges. At Greengate Lane Academy children are encouraged to develop into mature young adults, who uphold British Values and are prepared for an ever-changing world.


Our school values are;

  • Scholarship
  • Tenacity
  • Aspiration
  • Curiosity
  • Kindness

Greengate Lane Academy is part of the Astrea Academy Trust.
