Welcome from the Chair of the Academy Council.

Welcome to the new school year! We are very excited about what this year holds for our students, particularly after last year being so successful with 85% of year 11 students achieving at least 1 qualification and a year 14 student obtained 2 “A” levels and is off to university
to study maths! We have also had everyone who completed the Project Search supported internships at Royal Derby Hospital placed in new job roles.
We will continue to push boundaries and innovate for our students to ensure they will have the successful futures they deserve.
We have started on a new project, jointly taking over the cafe at the Arboretum Park in Derby with St Andrew’s Academy.  The cafe will give many opportunities for our students to engage with the community and learn many new skills to set them up for the future, please pop in once it opens.
Alongside all the amazing work done in school to continue to challenge and develop our students, we will continue our work to influence mainstream schools, the community and employers, to ensure the best outcomes for as many of our students as possible that is specific to their need and future outcomes.
We on the Academy Council will continue to do our best to support and challenge Sabrina and her team to shape successful futures for all our students. If you feel you, or someone you know would like to contribute and join us, please let us know.
