A note from the Executive Principal…

My name is Michelle Dickens and I am proud to be the Executive Principal of our school. As a parent myself I know how important the right school is for your child. If you choose our school for your child, you have entrusted us with one of the most important and rewarding jobs in the world: that of education and welfare of your child.

At Alt Academy, we want our children to be able to make informed choices and be confident to stand up for what they feel is right. As part of our school's aims to promote a happy and successful school, we are working towards recognition as a 'Rights Respecting School'. this is an award which is given to schools on behalf of UNICEF.

The 'Rights Respecting School' award (RRSA) will help our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within the wider community. By learning about their rights our pupils, your children, also learn about the importance of respecting the rights of others i.e. their responsibilities.

Working together with parents, families and the community is vital for Alt to ensure that our children get the best support to equip them for their future lives. I firmly believe that by working together we can achieve our aims.


Michelle Dickens

Executive Principal
