School profile

The Totteridge Academy

At The Totteridge Academy, we provide a high quality education in a safe, caring, and focused environment. We teach skills and knowledge, enabling our students to become responsible, well-rounded citizens, equipped with the tools to make effective choices for their futures.

​The rich educational experience at The Totteridge Academy develops students’ passion for learning and belief in their own ability, both within the classroom and beyond. We teach our students to appreciate the beauty of maths, the wonder of science, and the power of the written word. We gradually expose pupils to the best that’s been thought and said in each area of the curriculum – every lesson, every day.

​Beyond the classroom, we provide a rich and nurturing culture. We greet each other in the corridor and hold the door open for the person behind us. We celebrate our differences whilst standing together as a united learning community. We provide a wide range of after-school clubs and invite inspiring speakers and organisations to join us for assemblies and special events.

About our school experience

Candidates will have the opportunity to observe a wide range of lessons, as well as work alongside students and teachers within those lessons. We would encourage any candidates, who feel comfortable doing so, to take on responsibility from the outset of their experience with us.
