Ethos and values
“It is my great pleasure to be the principal of our wonderful school. Barclay became an academy in 2019 and since then we have been on an incredible journey.
Barclay Academy is a warm and caring school with excellent subject specialist teachers and a strong knowledge-rich curriculum. We want the very best for every student so that they can go on to do whatever they want to do.
Access to a varied co-curricular programme also gives our students the opportunity to gain new skills and experiences.
Thank you for taking the time to look at our website and to find out more about what we offer here for our students. Please get in touch if you would like any further information, and we will be more than happy to help.”
Dr Matthew Laban
Barclay Academy is a flourishing mixed, non-selective secondary school and sixth form based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, admitting students from the ages of 11 to 18.
We are part of Future Academies Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), and share their high standards of excellence.
We offer a rich and stimulating education comprised of a knowledge-rich curriculum, diverse cultural and extracurricular opportunities, and a strong pastoral support system. All children are welcomed in our inclusive community, and all are challenged to be the best they can be.
With the support of our sponsors, Future, we are able to engage with the best teachers, the best universities and a wide range of the most prominent employers in the country to ensure that all our children are equipped with the knowledge and desire to be the best in whatever path they wish to follow. This ethos is embodied in our Trust values (Knowledge, Aspiration, and Respect) and in our school motto, libertas per cultum (freedom through education).
