Our Values and Ethos

We are proud to be part of the United Learning family of schools and share a common ambition to achieve ‘The best in everyone’. At the Hyndburn Academy, we are committed to ensuring we achieve this vision by:

  • Providing equal opportunities for all students;
  • Encouraging all students to achieve their full potential;
  • Promoting tolerance, sensitivity and understanding.

We aim to achieve this by enabling each member of the school community to develop and flourish within a caring, safe and supportive environment.

The HYA Charter #WideningHorizons 

We pledge to our students that throughout their time with us at The Hyndburn Academy, we will offer opportunities to widen their horizons and bring out 'The Best in Everyone'.  This includes offering all our students the opportunity to:

  • Attend a residential
  • Listen to an inspirational speaker
  • Explore the area you live in through a variety of cultural experience
  • Be creative, try something new through creative arts, performing arts, sport or technology
  • Attend an artistic, cultural, or sporting event
  • Help others through voluntary activities, fundraising, or enterprise
  • Represent the academy at a public-facing event
  • Develop leadership and character through the student council participation groups, leadership opportunities and representing your house or the Academy
  • Be prepared for life in modern Britain through activities including debates and public speaking
  • Know your destination by having meaningful interactions with further education providers and employers

The HYA Way #5StepsToRespect 

#BeThoughtful Treat others with respect, treat people as you would like to be treated

#BeSafe Walk on the left and keep your hands off each other - Let's keep as far apart as possible when walking around the Academy. Do not touch anyone at all

#BeKind Always use respectful language. Speak to people the way you would like people to speak to you

#BeTidy Do not drop litter. We spend a lot of time in school, let's keep it a nice environment 

#BeCalm Act in a calm manner. As young adults, you are constantly managing your emotions. Take a deep breath and make the right decisions
