Welcome to Barnsley Academy...

New website coming soon


The best schools are underpinned by an ethos, behaviour and tradition that are understood, respected and valued by everyone across the school community. That is why we place a great emphasis on being a values-led organisation with an ethos established to bring hope and aspiration to the communities we serve in our schools. Our values act as a yardstick for how we behave, interact with each other and deliver our mission.  

During the first half of 2012, our staff, students and governors were consulted on refreshing our values; to identify the concepts, attributes and behaviours that exemplify what it genuinely means to bring out the best in everyone.

These values need to be as clear and as applicable to our highest performing schools as they are to those that are on the road to becoming outstanding. Their currency and validity is determined by how we behave as individuals, as schools and as an organisation.
