Welcome to Abraham Darby Academy

Lee_HadleyI am delighted to welcome you to our website which I hope will give you a flavour of our vibrant and exciting community. At Abraham Darby we are passionate about learning in its widest sense. Our mission is to ensure that our pupils value and enjoy their learning inside and outside the classroom. We are focused on achieving the best possible academic outcomes and the development of the whole person.

Our pupils are confident, calm and caring. We seek to develop these core traits in all that we do. Our extensive extra-curricular programme is a key mechanism in developing these traits, it allows pupils to be involved in a wide range of sporting and creative activities, to work with others in teams and build strong relationships with their peers and staff. Our Academy does not stop when teaching ends! Indeed, even on Saturday mornings you will find significant numbers of pupils and staff involved in our Music College and rugby fixtures.

We strive for excellence in every aspect of academy life. Uniform, behaviour, punctuality and communication skills are given a high priority. Pupils learn the importance of these things quickly and also understand how they are linked to success on whichever path they choose to take in their lives. At the end of their time with us our pupils are impressive people.

Our House system is the lifeblood of the Academy. It fosters competition, participation, belonging and student leadership. Sixth form and Year 11 pupils take the lead in the organisation and running of House events such as cross-country, athletics and netball. Our older pupils, therefore, become role models for those lower down the Academy, leading by example and modelling the values we seek to prioritise.

I hope you find the website informative and that you are enthused by the opportunities the Academy would present to your child. If you would like to learn more, do please come to see us. There is the opportunity for prospective parents to visit the Academy by appointment at any stage of the year.
