Totternhoe C.E. Academy

With God’s love, we seek adventure with our minds and find a home for our hearts


 Our academy is a place where everyone should be able to flourish in a loving and hospitable community. Each person in all their unique difference should be able to thrive, irrespective of physical appearance, gender, race, religion, ethnicity, socio-economic background, academic ability, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity. We are committed to promoting the understanding of the principles and practices of equality – treating all members of our academy community as individuals, according to their needs, with an awareness of our diverse society and appreciating the value of difference. We actively seek to challenge discrimination and we promote an anti-bullying stance that makes clear the unacceptability of racist, disablist and homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying and language. For more information please see our RSHE policy and our  Accessibility, Disability policy and Action Plan.
