We are delighted to confirm that The Link Academy has leapt two grades in a recent Ofsted inspection and is now rated as ‘Good’ across the board. Moving from ‘Special Measures’ to ‘Good’ in one go is an exceptional result only achieved by twelve other schools in the last ten years. Emma Edwards-Morgan, Principal at The Link Academy, said, “When I joined the academy as Principal three years ago, I said that it was a fantastic opportunity to change lives among the young people of Netherton and the surrounding area. Now I can say that we are truly giving our learners the education and opportunities that they deserve.”
Being locally raised and educated, I am acutely aware of the vital role that my own secondary education played in my subsequent choices. The senior team and wider staff at The Link Academy are committed to changing lives among the young people of Netherton and the surrounding area. This school made a huge difference in my life; I am extremely proud to be from the local area and I want every child to achieve to their potential under our guidance.
