What I enjoy about Skinners’ Academy is that wherever you turn, teachers will always be there to help you learn and succeed in school and in the future by teaching you skills you might need. This benefits me by making me feel that I’ll have the best chance in life and I will be able to fulfil my maximum potential.

The best thing about Skinners’ Academy is its background. Because Skinners’ has a long history, since 1327, it makes us stand out from other academies.
Kadisha, Year 9
My teachers at Skinners’ always told me to exert myself, and visit the very frontiers of my ability. Hence I have achieved in my academic subjects and been awarded a place at university to study English Literature with Creative Writing. As a result, I have the confidence to do well!
