At Magna, we take great pride in being a responsible and encouraging member of the local corporate community.

We want to help our students realise their full potential and, in doing so, enrich the local community. We want our students and staff to be role models in that community and we love to receive testimonials both local and from further afield that affirm the work we are doing here.

And we like feedback. Particularly here on this website. Managing a website primarily for the benefit of it's users means always keeping an ear close to the ground about what we do well and what we do less well. More than anything, we'd like to know what's not here on the website that you would like to see added.

All you have to do to let us know is email us using this link.

Thank you for supporting Magna Academy. It means a great deal to us to have you along for the journey.
