Our primary focus centres on the development of exceptional teaching and learning provision. This will ensure that all our pupils flourish and get to realise their potential.
At Edna G Olds Academy we want to inspire our pupils to excel in every aspect of their lives. Our children are encouraged to think creatively, question their ideas and embed a philosophy of high standards in order to achieve their goals. We have a range of opportunities to exploit our pupil voice, these include: Edna LEADer, (pupil newspaper), pupil voice, "New Lenton" group, food critic group, (school dinners).
When you visit Edna G Olds Academy you will witness enthusiastic pupils who want to actively demonstrate key learning principles and share their learning and individual targets with you. Visitors are always impressed by our pupils’ consistently excellent standards of behaviour.
We are passionately committed towards providing an educational environment that thrives on fostering, high personal, social and moral values, alongside a curriculum which promotes highest aspirations for learning.
