Marine Academy Plymouth
Marine Academy is an 11-19 school, sharing its campus with Marine Academy Primary and Nursery. Its core belief is that every student who leaves the school in Year 13 should have the opportunity to attend University. It is principally an academic school with a key focus on core subjects alongside Humanities, Languages, Music and Sport.
We will achieve these things by delivering a challenging and academic curriculum in a culture of aspiration and the highest of expectations. For us, there are no excuses accepted for failure.
We are proud to be different here at Marine Academy. Our belief, first and foremost is that excellent qualifications and the option to access University are the two most important indicators of student success. This is not at the cost of happiness and wellbeing. Quite simply, we want to produce the next generation of leaders, and have more students go on to Russell Group Universities than any other school in the country.
We are proud to champion traditional academic subjects and expect politeness, and the highest levels of discipline from our students. We believe that the ability to speak another language and play a musical instrument is vitally important and our new curriculum for 2019/20 will reflect that belief.
At Marine Academy our aim is to give every student the kind of education that is comparable to the highest performing private schools in the country. Discipline, leadership, resilience and aspiration are our core pillars that run through everything we do. Our new curriculum is a highly academic one, where children will study at least three lessons of languages every week, alongside the opportunity to study subjects such as economics, classics, politics, psychology and Latin. Sporting excellence, music mastery, art and drama are areas which our students will excel and be provided with curriculum time and opportunities to develop their skill and passion.

We are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all our students whatever their needs or ability.
We believe that:
- all students are entitled to a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum, and it is the responsibility of all teaching staff to deliver this.
- all students are entitled to be valued by all staff for the individual contribution they make and therefore, are entitled to experience success and feel positive about themselves.
- the members of the Academy Trust together with all teaching staff, and teaching and learning support staff accept responsibility for students with special needs. All teachers are recognised as teachers of SEND.
- more able students also have special educational needs and may require special provision or consideration, even though the needs of these children are not advertised by the SEND Code of Practice.
- many students, other than those identified by the Academy may need temporary help and support during their college life as they face setbacks.
