Message from the Principal

Welcome to The Milton Keynes Academy and thank you for taking the time to find out about what we believe, is the most exciting school in Milton Keynes. Since September 2018, we have been members of Creative Education Trust, working collaboratively with a network of schools to provide even more Opportunities for Everyone through our Knowledge Connected curriculum. 

MKA is first and foremost a place of learning where students feel safe and enjoy their educational journey. Learning is at the centre of everything we do, both in and out of the classroom, and your child will flourish in the midst of so many possibilities.  

We are incredibly proud of our business links and how we use them to enhance the learning of our students.  We celebrate every success; from those students who successfully go on to Russell Group universities, to those who thrive in apprenticeships and the wider world of work. 

At MKA, we firmly believe that our young people should be given every opportunity to achieve beyond their potential. Each one of our students is unique and is recognised as an individual. It is our responsibility to celebrate this and provide them with the skills and ability that prepare them to be successful in the future. Every student at MKA today is a potential leader for the future. 

Our Academy exists for our community and its children. We set our expectations high and work with all our students, their families, our staff and the wider community to get the best outcomes possible, whether that be in academic results, community engagement, performing arts or performance on the sports pitch.  

We hope that this information helps you to decide if MKA is the right place for your child and invite you to visit and see for yourselves. The way to fully experience and appreciate what MKA has to offer is to visit during a normal school day. I therefore invite you to contact us to arrange a visit and to discuss any further questions you may have. 

Gordon Farquhar, Principal 

Our Ethos:

  • We’re friendly. We create an atmosphere that is unpretentious, where students feel at ease and are able to be themselves.
  • We’re inclusive. Students, staff, parents, governors and the community as a whole are welcomed and enjoy being part of the Academy.
  • We’re personal. We work closely to encourage and support all students to achieve personal, academic and vocational skills.
  • We’re innovative. As we work closely within the community and develop relationships with local businesses, students will benefit from commercial reality.
