The Crest Girls’ Academy will expect students to support the principles that underpin social cohesion and be given the freedom and flexibility to succeed. In particular, there will be an expectation of high standards of behaviour, attendance, punctuality and commitment. There will be opportunities for students to assume increasing responsibility for aspects of the Academy and to participate in its ongoing development through effective ‘Student Voice’ strategies. The Academy will actively encourage and support students to aspire to higher education through a range of opportunities, including bursaries and involvement in university activities.

E-ACT’s formal links with the local and national universities, particularly Brunel University, will help to support an ethos of high aspirations and ambition in students.  The Crest Girls’ Academy will mobilise the active involvement of the business community through the sponsor’s network of local and national connections so that young people are able to gain full access to employment.

The Crest Girls’ Academy will also be supported by a strategic learning partnership with Highgate School, a local independent school. Enterprise activities will underpin all aspects of learning, and help to develop students’ thinking, problem-solving and life skills. Access to a comprehensive programme of careers education and guidance, pastoral care, professional mentoring and personal, health and citizenship education will complement students’ academic study.
