Our School

Welcome to Millbay Academy, an all-through school in Plymouth’s Coastal Quarter. This is a place where everyone is important and where every moment counts.

Millbay Academy is part of the Reach South family of schools. Reach South Academy Trust exists to provide schools that serve their local community; offering parents and guardians access to the highest quality of local schools for their children.

Our values will underpin all that we do. At Millbay Academy we will provide a stimulating learning environment where children will feel safe, happy and consequently thrive.

Our vision is clear: challenging academic and personal goals will be set for every member of the Millbay Academy community, and we will provide the support and encouragement required to reach them. We will do whatever it takes.

Our new and exciting curriculum will be relevant to our pupils’ current needs and future aspirations. It will focus on the core subjects, on the humanities and languages, and on developing a competence in and love of the arts. Fostering independence, problem-solving and creative thinking underpins our pedagogical approach.

Wider curriculum opportunities are equally important and this includes our vision for all children to explore and be curious about themselves and the world around them.

We are passionate advocates of all-through education. Through this, we will be able to serve our community and families, ensuring an excellent educational experience with continuity and progression. All-through education offers many unique opportunities, including shared experiences, powerful role models and the in-depth knowledge of subject specialists.

We will make memories at Millbay Academy – and they will be happy ones. 

Happy children make good learners!
