Bygrave Mr A - BFF7SQ7_ CQFBILBThank you for visiting the University Academy Kidsgrove website.

University Academy Kidsgrove (UAK) is a school for pupils aged 11-16 and we are part of the University of Chester Academies Trust (UCAT).

Our last inspection by Ofsted in November 2016 endorsed my belief that UAK is the school of choice in Kidsgrove.

Our aims at UAK reflect those of the whole family at UCAT academies.

  • Enables individuals to Believe in themselves and their ability, as well as in others
  • Cultivates within our students and staff a true sense that they Belong to a family that cares for them and supports them
  • Enriches and extends their learning so that each can Become the individual they aspire to be.

University Academy Kidsgrove is an academic Academy with a strong reputation for the care and guidance we provide for all our pupils.

Ofsted wrote; ‘Teaching, progress and behaviour are all improving’ and that pupils ‘behave well in lessons’.  According to the November 2016 Ofsted Report.

At University Academy Kidsgrove ‘Expectations are high and teachers challenge pupils to do their best’. (Ofsted November 2016).

Parents and families are welcome to visit the Academy, by arrangement, to see for themselves the quality of education and support we offer pupils.

Please contact the Academy on telephone number 01782 948250 if you would like a tour of the building and the opportunity to meet our staff.

Yours faithfully,

Mr A Bygrave
