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.

ANYONE FOR TENNIS!

Barnsley Academy students head to Wimbledon for a grand day out~

 

It was game, set and match when Barnsley Academy students took a trip to Wimbledon last week to watch stars from the world of tennis.

 

Led by teachers Scott Bramall and Rebecca Wright, the trip was a reward for eight lucky students, who saw Venus Williams in action on court one, as well as other games on the outside courts.

 

During the visit, the students - many of whom had never been to London before - also had time to visit popular landmarks such as Big Ben and the London Eye.

 

Said Mr Bramall: 

 

"We had some amazing seats on court one and despite the weather, were able to watch some great games. Everyone had an amazing day and the students behaved impeccably."

 

Added Executive Principal Nikki Shaw:

 

"What an incredible but thoroughly well deserved experience for our students and a big thank you to Mr Bramall and Miss Wright who gave up their own time to lead the visit."

 

Those students attending were: Jamal Hazelhurst (Y7), Alex Rosa (Y7),

Shauna Dudley (Y7), Klaudia Wyskiel (Y7), Filip Rudniki (Y8), Jamie Caine (Y8), Eliza Maphosa (Y8) and Caitlin Murray (Y8.)

ENGLAND’S SUE SMITH SCORES A WINNER AT BARNSLEY ACADEMY 13 July 2016

ENGLAND’S SUE SMITH SCORES A WINNER AT BARNSLEY ACADEMY

England international Sue Smith helped pass on her winning ways to students when she paid a visit to Barnsley Academy this week.

 

Kickstarting her career with Tranmere Rovers in the 1990s, Sue went on to play football for a number of top league clubs including Leeds United, Lincoln Ladies and Doncaster Rovers Belles. Her fleet footed skills also won her a place in the national squad, representing England from 1997 until 2011, with a grand total of 93 caps.

 

Now a mentor for the Sky Sports Living for Sport Project, which works with young people aged 11-18 from across the country using sport to inspire students to achieve more, Sue called in on Barnsley Academy to lead a special assembly for Year 8 students, talking about aspirations.

 

Commenting on her visit to the academy, Sue said:

 

“As a Sky Sports mentor, the aim is to help motivate young people through sport, focusing on the keys to success and working these into practical and theory sessions. At Barnsley Academy, the students really responded to the assembly and I was particularly impressed with how they listened and learnt from the session.”

 

Barnsley Academy’s Executive Principal Nikki Shaw said:

 

“We were delighted to welcome Sue to the academy, with those students who took part finding it incredibly inspiring.”

STUDENTS DRESS TO IMPRESS AT BARNSLEY ACADEMY PROM 13 July 2016

STUDENTS DRESS TO IMPRESS AT BARNSLEY ACADEMY PROM

 

Barnsley Academy students stepped out in style last week to take part in the Kendray school’s annual prom. 

 

Held at The Fairway, this year’s event was organized by Head of Year 11 Miss Jayne Carr and the academy’s prom committee, with over 100 students attending – more than double last year’s event.

 

Many proud families escorted students to the event, with weird and wonderful transportation, including a 16 wheeler truck, limousine and horse and carriage.

 

Joe Borrow and Emily Phillips’ hard work, determination and enthusiasm across the academic year also saw them earn the title of Prom King and Queen. 

 

Barnsley Academy’s Executive Principal Nikki Shaw said: 

 

“For many of our students, the prom is the highlight of the year and as always, they were a credit to themselves, their families and the academy. We wish them all the very best in their future endeavours.”
