Vision and Ethos

Our vision

Nightingale Community Academy exists to provide pupils with a consistent support that nurtures educational and social wellbeing to create independent, empathetic and ambitious young adults who hold themselves to high standards and make a positive contribution to the communities in which they live. They are Accountable, Successful and Kind.

Our values

Have been developed  using the school’s vision as a starting point to create the acronym “NCA WISE”:

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
