School Description

The Footsteps Academy aims to ‘give students the skills, knowledge, and confidence to be able to make positive decisions about their future’ and ‘work in a flexible, supportive and dynamic environment with a wide range of choices for clients that enables them to learn skills, achieve success, and access further education or employment’. The Footsteps Academy was founded in 2010 as Football Academy by the current Principal and CEO. It has subsequently expanded and now operates across three sites to provide vocational and sports facilities. There are currently 51 pupils on roll aged between 12 and 16. Most are referred from local authority secondary schools in the London Boroughs of Haringey, Hackney, Islington and Camden. The academy also accepts pupils from the London Borough of Haringey’s Youth Offending Service. The Footsteps Academy caters for pupils who have a record of poor behaviour and attitudes or a history of poor attendance. The Footsteps Trust is overseen by a Trustees Committee and chaired by one of the trustees. The trust is currently working to appoint an additional trustee with an education background. The academy does not use any alternative provision. The Footsteps Academy was registered by the Department for Education in February 2015 and this is its first standard inspection.

Footsteps Trust Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK.
