Laureate Academy

Ethos and values

“We are committed to providing our students with an excellent education.

Our ethos is rooted in our motto, libertas per cultum (freedom through education) and our values: knowledge, aspiration and respect. This is reflected in every aspect of academy life.

Our knowledge-rich curriculum encourages our students to stretch the boundaries of their individual ability.

This is delivered in tandem with a rich and varied Education Enrichment programme that takes students’ learning beyond their classrooms.

Furthermore, student wellbeing is our highest priority at Laureate Academy and our strong pastoral system ensures that our school community is inclusive, safe and happy. We are proud of our growing reputation for academic excellence and high standards.”


Laureate Academy is a flourishing mixed, non-selective secondary school and sixth form based in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, admitting students from the ages of 11 to 18.  

We are part of Future Academies Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), and share their high standards of excellence.

We offer a rich and stimulating education comprised of a knowledge-rich curriculum, diverse cultural and extracurricular opportunities, and a strong pastoral support system.

All children are welcomed in our inclusive community, and all are challenged to be the best they can be.

With the support of our sponsors, Future, we are able to engage with the best teachers, the best universities and a wide range of the most prominent employers in the country to ensure that all our children are equipped with the knowledge and desire to be the best in whatever path they wish to follow. This ethos is embodied in our Trust values (Knowledge, Aspiration, and Respect) and in our school motto, libertas per cultum (freedom through education).
