ACADEMY IS ON A MISSION TO CONTINUE TO BROADEN LEARNERS’ HORIZONS, INCREASE THEIR SELF-CONFIDENCE AND STRENGTHEN THEIR LIFE SKILLS
The five consecutive years of improved GCSE results at Pegasus Academy would be a major achievement for any school.
Results have made big advances in the core subjects of English, Mathematics and science, with improvements being made across the board.
Results, though, only tell half of the story. The leadership team at Pegasus Academy is on a clear mission to continue transforming the school by appointing the very best teaching staff, pushing for improvement in every area and encouraging their learners to Dream Big about their futures.
Staff are determined to broaden learners’ horizons, increase their self-confidence and strengthen their life skills. The aim is to encourage and help each child to be the best that they can be.
Good behaviour is a key ingredient. Every school has a behaviour model, but this one is different. It focuses on opportunities for learners to be rewarded. Perhaps that is why attendance at Pegasus has been less affected by Covid than at any other Dudley secondary school.
Of course, there are sanctions for learners who break the rules. This cuts out the behaviour that prevents learners from learning, that wastes time in the classroom and distracts attention from the subject being studied. In and out of the classroom, learners and teachers agree that the behaviour model is a massive plus point for Pegasus Academy.
At the same time, a considerable effort has gone into making the academy environment into something that inspires and motivates our learners, with improvements having been made to the classrooms in every block of the school.
There is a new attitude among learners at Pegasus and a conviction across the academy that they will continue to make good progress over the years to come.
