St Ursulas E-ACT Academy - Home

Welcome message from Ross Moody, Principal

Welcome to the St. Ursula's E-ACT Academy website.

2017 is a very exciting year for our pupils, parents and staff as we settle into our brand new twenty-one classroom academy building. It is a fantastic state of the art school which also benefits from a beautiful field and woodland area. We are developing the natural areas of the site by following the Forest school programme. Staff have been trained and are disseminating this knowledge to the rest of the teaching team. We look forward to spring and summer so that more teaching can take place outside.  

I hope our website provides you with all the information you require. However, if you can't find what you are looking for, please dont hesitate to contact us or arrange a visit as we are always pleased to show parents/carers around our academy. 

St. Ursula's is a happy, vibrant school with a nurturing and safe environment. All staff, parents and Academy Ambassadors are fully committed to achieving our mission statement, 'Learning together to become the best we can be, in an inspiring and happy community'. 

I look forward to meeting you.

Ross Moody

Thank you to all Staff, Parents and Pupils.

Children's University

As a school we have signed up to the Children’s University. The Children’s University is an international charity that provides 7 to 14 year olds (and 5 to 6 year olds with their families) with access to exciting and innovative CU learning activities and experiences outside of the normal school day. On becoming members of the Children’s University, children are issued with a Passport to Learning which is available from school.

Children are then encouraged to participate in CU Learning Activities. Each hour of CU validated learning they complete brings the child closer to a Children’s University graduation certificate presented at a locally organised graduation ceremony hosted in a real university setting. Shine After School Club have also signed up so pupils can gain validated learning there too. For more information please see the attached document and visit
