Welcome to Morton Academy. We are an Ofsted rated good school with a long track record of improvement. We are a community school in every sense of the word helping students from the west of Carlisle to fulfil their potential and be the best that they can be.
As the Principal of Morton Academy, I am privileged to lead our team of colleagues who are determined to make a positive difference to the lives of our young people. This is a small, happy school built on effective relationships and high expectations.
Our students benefit from state-of-the-art facilities, excellent outdoor space and a broad curriculum which focusses on ensuring that students master skills and acquire a deep understanding of a range of subjects, topics and ideas. We want our students to experience the best in each subject area delivered by well trained, committed subject specialists.
We take our role in the lives of our students seriously. We nurture our young people to resilient and independent. We encourage respect and enthusiasm. We want our students to be scholarly and aspirational. As part of United Learning we believe our mission is to bring out the best in everyone. At Morton Academy, this is what we seek to every lesson, every day.
I would be delighted to welcome you to Morton Academy, please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit.
Mr Richard McGuire
