Maritime Academy opens to its first students

Maritime Academy opens to its first students

We are proud to open this Secondary School to deliver a transformative education to young people in Strood and Medway.

On Monday 5th September Maritime Academy opened its doors for the first time to welcome their founding Year 7 cohort. This is the first Secondary School we have built and opened as a Trust, and we are hugely proud of the immense, collective effort  from Teaching and Central staff to ensure this special day was a resounding success.

Maritime Academy’s mission statement is ‘Making Excellence a Habit’ and the transformative education offered will ensure students receive the best life chances possible.

As part of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust, Maritime Academy will inspire and enrich students through a cognitive approach to education that encourages focus and to consider our thinking. The displays of Hats, Maps and Keys within each classroom is a brilliant and apt reminder for students to get the most from the learning day.

‘I am immensely proud to be welcoming Year 7 Students, as Maritime Academy officially opens today. We seek to inspire a school community built on the foundations of Pride and Unity, and will instil a sense of personal Strength through perseverance and dedication, to ensure every student fulfils their potential.

This is another step on our amazing journey, and I look forward to many more inspiring days as we continue to grow.’

– Mr Evans, Head of School
