An Invitation from the Directors of Biddick Academy

 

As directors we spend sufficient time in the Academy to be able to recognise the excellent relationships between the staff and students and the positive attitude of all concerned – not only in the classroom but in the wide range of sports, performing arts and other voluntary activities.

Biddick has a well earned reputation as a good Academy. As directors we are proud of the staff, the students and the continuous improvement in academic results and the many successes achieved by Biddick students. We believe parents can only be impressed by what Biddick has to offer.

We would strongly recommend that any family considering Biddick Academy for their child take time to visit and discuss their choices with staff and students.

 ACADEMY PRESS RELEASE

The best way to experience the very special atmosphere at Biddick Academy is by making a visit. We are an open academy and encourage all parental and community interest.

The academy is set in attractive grounds and has outstanding state of the art facilities. We moved into our new building in April 2010. The academy is a co-educational specialist sports college for pupils aged 11-16. We are also a partner in the Usworth 6th Form, a joint post 16 venture involving three Washington Secondary Schools and the City of Sunderland College.

We are proud of our sporting, international and cultural achievements. The academy is recognised for this through the Arts Mark Gold Award – recognition of our excellence in Art, Drama, Dance and Music. We have also been recognised by the British Council for our international dimension through the prestigious International School Award.

The philosophy of valuing wider opportunities for young people alongside academic success has enabled the academy to build its reputation since opening 30+ years ago. The academy is always a popular choice with parents and students. As a result we are over subscribed. I am proud to be the ‘head’ of such a special ‘family’ contact, I will respond!
