Welcome to Barnsley Academy...

Executive Principal’s Welcome

I am both proud and privileged to be leading Barnsley Academy during a period of transition, development and improvement. I was welcomed into the school community in May 2014 and, since that time, I have worked in partnership with school staff, our local community and professional partners to ensure that our Academy is moving rapidly towards becoming a good school.

Our Academy is sponsored by United Learning – a group of schools which aims to provide excellent education to all children and young people across the country. As a United Learning academy, we seek to improve the life chances of all the children and young people we serve and make it our mission to bring out “the best in everyone” – students, staff, parents and the wider community.

We are committed to all of our students receiving personalised support to ensure that each one of them is able to make the progress we know they are capable of. At the heart of our practice is a desire to work with parents and carers to develop an environment which provides a truly holistic and inclusive approach which fosters high expectations and standards at every level.

Our newly formed Senior Leadership Team is excited by the challenges ahead and is uncompromising in its pursuit of excellence as we know that each of our students deserve the very best education we can offer and, it is with this aim, that we are determined to serve our own community.  

Nikki Shaw

Academy students taught to stay safe online

Jane Hutchinson

PUPILS at Barnsley Academy have been learning how to stay safe online.
Academy students took part in a number of workshops with police as part of their personal, social and health education.
The workshops, delivered by Amelix Youth Projects, cover topics including drug misuse, how to keep safe online and the awareness of social media sites including Facebook and Snapchat.
They have been funded by Police and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire Alan Billings and the idea is to reduce antisocial behaviour and alert young people to a range of dangers.
