Millbank Academy


“At Millbank Academy, we proudly differentiate from other primary schools in the following areas; 

  • We apply a model of subject-specific teaching at Key Stage 2
    Rather than receiving all their lessons from one teacher, children are taught by passionate and knowledgeable subject specialists, much like they would be at secondary school.
  • We do not teach to the test
    Unlike many primary schools, we do not place SATs at the core of what we do, but instead teach a broad and balanced mixture of traditional subjects (including Latin, English, ancient history, British history, grammar and mathematics).
  • We focus on developing students’ vocabulary and grammar
    Not purely in their English lessons but in the delivery of all subjects.
  • Alongside the more formal elements of our curriculum, we offer our children a rich and varied extracurricular programme
    We nurture their social and moral development and broadening their horizons. Students have access to a broad and thrilling range of extracurricular activities, including a variety of sport activities, music lessons and choirs, debating clubs and gardening clubs.
  • We are a positive, friendly and vibrant school in which all students feel valued and supported
    Our core values are knowledge, aspiration and self-determination, and our school is one that places children at the centre: within a warm and supportive environment, children are encouraged to flourish and grow, and are helped to develop into happy, articulate, confident and courteous members of society.”
