Have a great summer!

It has been another busy and successful year for the Academy. Such success is only possible because of the hard work of our fantastic students and staff, and the support of families and the community…

 So have a well-deserved and wonderful summer break! Please return safely and well rested for another busy year!

 Autumn Term begins at 8.20am, Thursday 7th September for all students.


 
We look forward to seeing our Year 11 students again, and celebrating their successes on their results day. This is:  Thursday, 24th August from 10.00am – best of luck!


 Have a great holiday and see you in September.

Welcome to Barnsley Academy...

As Principal of Barnsley Academy, I am delighted to welcome you to our website. I hope that it provides you with all the information you need about the academy, but more importantly, gives an insight into life here and enables you to celebrate with us the achievements of our incredible students, families and staff.

In the ever-changing world of education, we believe in keeping things simple. Our goal is to provide the very best school at the heart of its community. To achieve this, we are committed to the provision of personalised support for all of our students, helping them to achieve all that they are capable of and fulfilling their aspirations. The academy is also driven by a desire to work with parents and carers to develop an environment which provides a truly holistic and inclusive approach, generating high expectations and standards at every level.

Our Academy is sponsored by United Learning – a group of schools and academies which aims to provide excellent education to all children and young people across the country. As a United Learning academy, we are able to work within a national network of successful schools and offer more than any single school could. Working collaboratively enables all of United Learning’s schools and academies to bring out “the best in everyone” – students, staff, parents and the wider community.

We are a rapidly improving school that places our students at the centre of everything we do - something praised by Ofsted in our last inspection. Our staff are exceptionally hardworking and dedicated to improving the life chances and choices for all of our students and, as Principal, it is a privilege to work with such dedicated professionals and amazing students.

Achievements in LRC

Despite the fact that we do not have any students who have moved up a level on the Lexia program, all the students have remained focused and are working hard.

 

We are very proud of them.

Rock Challenge

Rock Challenge progress - 30/06/2017 students and staff had a fabulous day! Students were superbly behaved and supportive of all other schools all day. Barnsley Academy were awarded four awards of excellence in Drama, Entertainment, Lighting and Concept! Students worked incredibly hard for the full piece and we're very proud.

 

Students will be performing this piece within The Journey on 5th and 6th July with the video from the full performance being played on the screen behind it to give the full impression. We hope to see you there.
