Abraham Darby Academy opened as a totally new academy in September 2008. It is an independent state academy; a company limited by guarantee and linked to Adams’ Grammar School, Newport in a loose Federation. The sponsors of the Academy are the Haberdashers’ Livery Company and Telford and Wrekin LA.
Our vision is one where all students are inspired to reach their full potential, no matter what their ability or background; where aspirations and achievements are constantly raised; where the improvements of standards reflect the needs of the local and wider communities; through the highest quality academic, personal and vocational teaching and guidance. We will build on the strengths and experiences of Abraham Darby Academy and Adams’ Grammar School, so that our students become independent learners, fully equipped for the opportunities, challenges and responsibilities of adult life in the 21st century and well prepared to be the leaders, professionals and parents of tomorrow.
