As a large secondary school Lodge Park offers a wide range of courses and approaches to learning to get the best out of everyone.
In their first years at the academy students cover a broad range of subjects with an emphasis on developing the skills and attitudes that cement success later.
English and mathematics are both areas that the academy places great store on everyone making progress in. The academy is nationally recognised for the quality of work it has done in the use of new technologies and access to ICT is very much part of the normal working day. That said, a student also needs to be able to work well in groups, settle down to organise themself for independent work, or take an active part in sport or the performing arts.
