World Class Schools is an award in which a school is recognised as ‘Beyond Outstanding’. It is the calibre of the student which proves the calibre of the school. If the school is truly World Class then the students will be able to own and demonstrate World Class qualities.

A World Class student:

  • Is highly literate scientifically, mathematically, technologically and culturally.
  • Consistently out-performs students from similar contexts, and is committed to continually improving their performance.
  • Is an excellent learner, dedicated to life- long learning
  • Is a compelling candidate in their field for higher education and/or employment, being globally aware, confident and prepared for life in an international environment

In December 2016, The Morley Academy’s students were recognised as being World Class as they demonstrated and evidenced, through a 2 month programme that they are competent in all of the above skills.

In July 2019 the academy was reaccredited with World Class Schools Quality Mark.

Throughout the reaccreditation process students had to uphold the World Class standards and evidence that this was taking place on a daily basis as well as develop relationships between the academy and other World Class Schools. Students hosted colleagues and students from other World Class Schools and had to demonstrate how the strands of the World Class Schools Quality Mark were embedded as part of daily life at The Morley Academy.

Within the academy students are now working on entries for the World Class essay writing completion, as well as becoming assessors for other academies.
