First Star Academies UK inaugural Academy is the St Mary’s First Star Academy.  The Academy is set within the Institute of Education at St Mary’s University, Twickenham whose tradition of excellence in education  provides an ideal setting for our pilot academy.

The main focus of First Star St Mary’s Academy is a 4-week residential academy taking place on the St Mary’s University main campus.  In addition to the summer academy, there are monthly Saturday academies throughout the rest of the year.  Academy students live on campus in the halls of residence for the duration of the summer academy and are immersed in university life.  The Students’ first summer academy takes place between years 9 and 10, and they remain with us for the next 4 years, throughout GCSE and A-level / post 16 education.

The first cohort of Academy students joined St Mary’s in 2017 and a new cohort will start in the summer of 2019.  If you are a year 8 pupil in 2018-2019 and you are interested in joining the academy contact Nick and explore more about the academy below.
