Academy Vision

Pilgrim Academy is at the centre of its community, raising aspirations and achievement. It does this in two ways: firstly, through the excellent teaching of an extended and balanced curriculum which ignites curiosity, unlocks talent and realises potential; and secondly, by exercising high quality care, guidance and support that assures the safety, welfare and personal development of each child and young person.

Pilgrim Academy works with both statutory and voluntary local partners, to promote extended learning facilities for its pupils.

Tollbar Family of Academies aims to offer a world-class, 21st century education to the young people in all its academies, providing life-long learning opportunities and creating centres of excellence which model the successful practices at the founder school, Tollbar Academy, thereby bringing confidence and pride to the local community.
