Armfield Academy Questionnaire
We would like to hear your views....
Fylde Coast Academy Trust has agreement from the DfE to develop an all-through primary/secondary Free School with a nursery in the South area of Blackpool, on the site of the former Arnold School. The school will be named Armfield Academy and will open in 2018 with Nursery, Reception and Year 7 children, increasing year by year - offering places to children in South Blackpool and neighbouring localities in Lytham St Anne’s.
The vision for this school....
‘to bring expertise from the FCAT ‘family’ of schools in order to provide the community of Blackpool and Lytham St Anne’s with a high quality, high performing school in which every child really matters and which takes all of its children through to being young adults.’

‘to be a school for all children irrespective of culture, ethnicity, background and ability and to have an ethos based on the traditional core values of Pride, Ambition, Respect, Resilience, Integrity, and Excellence which underpin each of FCAT’s academies.’

Thank you for taking time to complete our questionnaire.
