WELCOME from the


A very warm welcome to Bay Leadership Academy. We are a mixed, 11-19 Academy and sixth form college serving the Heysham, Morecambe and Lancaster areas. We encourage our pupils to believe that with hard work, anything is possible, and we expect the highest standards of behaviour and academic effort – and the utmost dedication from our teaching and support staff – to ensure we deliver on our mission of educational excellence, character development and service to communities.

We are proud to be part of Star Academies and benefit from the expertise, collaborative approaches and comprehensive support that have enabled Star to deliver outstanding results across the country.

Our STAR values of service, teamwork, ambition and respect are the cornerstone of our academy culture and we are committed to fostering an inclusive and welcoming environment where pupils care about each other, care about the Academy and care about the community.

Our leadership specialism is grounded in the belief that successful schools inspire pupils to discover and develop their individual talents. We are committed to giving pupils rewarding leadership experiences in and beyond the classroom. We offer outstanding opportunities for academic, social and personal development that are enhanced by state-of-the-art study and leisure facilities.

Our aim is to ensure that our pupils aspire to achieve great things and fulfil their potential, so that when they leave school they are not only prepared academically, but also inspired to make a proactive, positive and lasting contribution to their local communities.

The Academy is committed to positive progress and, through successful collaboration with all of our stakeholders within the Star Academies’ network, we will work together to ensure Bay’s pupils are able to reach for the stars.
