The Victory Academy's Virtual Open Day

“Hello and welcome to The Victory Academy’s Virtual Open Day page, I am delighted that you have chosen to join us, and excited to share everything with you what makes us unique.

“This page will give you a real sense of our school, of the energy and enthusiasm that drives our teachers. We are committed to transforming the life chances of our students, supporting and encouraging them to achieve their personal best.

“As part of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust we use Thinking Tools, to help our students develop their life skills so they are equipped for success and ready for life after school.

“The Victory Academy is the heart of our local community of Chatham; which we celebrate and instill as a sense of belonging in all of our students. Our belief is that everyone is unique – everyone has gifts and talents that we seek to grow and nurture. Join us to become part of that community too.”

Advanced Accredited Thinking School

As part of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust, we take pride in the unique approach we take to education: we provide our children with the skills and tools they need to think in a variety of ways and become lifelong learners. The transferrable Thinking Tools that we teach our pupils are designed to prepare them for the range of scenarios, dilemmas and circumstances that they may face in later life as part of modern society.

The University of Exeter’s School of Education – which leads the way in research on Metacognition, Thinking Skills and Creativity – provides a framework for schools to become recognised Thinking Schools. We recently received our Level 2, Advanced Thinking Accreditation status. It is testament ot the application of both staff and students to the Thinking School philosophy that The Academy has now joined the few to have received this prestigious accreditation. 

Meet our Head of Year 7

“If you have a problem you can go to Student Services and Mrs Crane-Herbert our Head of Year. In the Galley they have the best cookies! You should have no fear it is calm and nice you don’t have to worry you will be safe and have lots of fun.  Also, if you like art, English, maths they have every subject here and I love them all!”  - Brooke, Year 7 

“It has been the best time of my life. I have made so many new friends! It is a big school but it’s like a bigger version of Primary. Social time is great, we play games and hang out and it is so much fun. The best thing about being in Year 7 is that there are so many nice teachers and Mrs Crane-Herbert is the best head of year and she helps us all out a lot.” - Seren 

'It is lifelong holistic learning that is placed at the core of the educational provision at the school and not just the end result." - University of Exeter
