MCA is a small, friendly, vibrant academy with high standards and expectations. We pride ourselves on knowing every young person well. Student welfare is at the heart of all our work and we have the highest aspirations for every child in our community.

We are at a pivotal point in our history. In our first inspection since becoming an academy we were judged as being good in all areas in October 2016. GCSE results have improved year on year and we are determined that we will become an outstanding academy.

Recent results demonstrate that we have the capability to achieve this. In 2016, the mathematics progress 8 value of +0.54 placed the department in the top 6% in the country, with 75% of students achieving C grade or above. This year 78% of students achieved a grade 4 or higher.

This year, English results increased by 17% ensuring that 70% of students achieved a grade 4 or higher. Our results placed us in the top 10% of Hampshire schools for improvement in the Basics measure.

Science results improved this year, but there is room for further improvement. All our recently appointed science teachers are fully qualified specialists and this newly formed team has been completed following the appointment of a substantive Head of Science, last term.

Our next goal is to improve the attainment of all students at all levels across all subjects. We are seeking an expert practitioner with experience of leading Teaching, Learning and Assessment across their school to lead this next exciting phase of our development. This Deputy Principal role is critical to achieving our aspiration of outstanding outcomes for all our students.

We are looking for applicants from aspirant Principals with the desire to take on significant whole school responsibilities. You will benefit from professional development to support you in your journey to achieving your career aspirations.

In September 2019, it will be an exciting time as we relocate to a purpose built new-build academy in Bordon. Currently under construction with an investment in excess of GBP 30M, it will include state of the art facilities for all departments.

For further details and to arrange a visit please contact Corinne Tutton, PA to the Principal, who will be pleased to make arrangements for you and can be contacted at or telephone (01420) 472132.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
