Skinners’ is an awesome place to teach because the pupils want to learn. They are buzzing with questions… they really make me work! The class sizes are small enough so that I feel I can give everyone individual attention every lesson. The behaviour is so good that I feel I can teach properly, with challenging content in exciting ways.

Skinners’ Academy has provided me with a high quality education and has helped me to gain new skills. The school environment is very spacious and helps to encourage pupils to push through any limitations.

My daughter has settled in very well at Skinners’ Academy and she looks forward to going to school every morning. I am especially happy with the progress she has made in her lessons and the unlimited support she receives from the staff.
