Welcome from the Founders

Welcome to Atam Academy, a happy, friendly and spiritual environment where children between the ages of 4 and 18 begin their exciting journey of discovery.

It is with great privilege and pleasure, through God’s grace, that Atam Academy, an all-through Sikh faith school in the London Borough of Redbridge, opened its primary school with Reception and Year 1 classes in September 2016. These will be joined by Year 2 in September 2017 and the school will grow by one year group each year until it reaches Year 6.  We will open a nursery and the secondary phase of the school in September 2018.

Atam Academy will be situated on Little Heath, off Barley Lane in Chadwell Heath. A five acre site on the former playing fields of Redbridge College has been allocated to the school. Our pupils will be fortunate to have a new build school with state of the art facilities. The planning application was passed in March 2017 and construction commences in July 2017.

The Atam Academy is a member of the Khalsa Academies Trust. Members of this Trust helped establish the Khalsa Primary School in Slough in 2007 which is now an Outstanding school. The schools currently run by the group include the Khalsa Secondary Academy in Stoke Poges which opened in Sept 2013 and The British Sikh School, a Secondary Academy in Wolverhampton which opened in September 2015.

Our commitment to educate all our students to become everything that they can be and are meant to be, and prepare them to play their part in all dynamic, multi-faith, multi-ethnic and multi-talented society. We will encourage our pupils to learn through experience and our dedicated staff will ensure that children of all abilities have equal opportunities to thrive.

The literal translation of the word ‘Sikh’ is a life-long learner and we will inspire a love of learning, a spirit of enquiry and improve the life chances and opportunities for all our students.

This is your school, a place for your child to flourish and experience a dynamic curriculum providing challenges and excitement.

We look forward to welcoming you to Atam Academy.
