Vision and Values

All Aboard! Navigating Together

Five Islands Academy brings together children from the archipelago of the Isles of Scilly, 28 miles out into the Atlantic Ocean  beyond Land’s End. Our vision is to offer learning without limits for all children, inspired by an extraordinary environment, our creative islands community and the far-reaching horizons in every direction.


Through our Academy values and curriculum, we nurture curious, collaborative, creative global learners with the rich knowledge and confident voices that will empower every student to thrive whether they choose to contribute to their local community or to sail away across the wider world. 


We are a Church of England school, and as such nurture the wisdom of being in balance with doing. Inspired by our powerful Academy values, we appreciate the gifts that are ours and those we have to offer as members of a diverse global family.



Hope is an anchor for the soul, steadfast and sure. 

Hebrews 6:19
