Congratulations to the twenty-two outstanding Year 10 students who have been successfully appointed as future Academy Ambassadors. The students, who went through a testing application and interview process, will begin their role after their Summer examinations and will support the Academy in various functions throughout Year 11. All students interviewed to an outstanding level and should be extremely proud of themselves!

A group of Shirebrook science teachers are putting down their Bunsen burners and picking up their walking boots to take part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.
Most of the group work at Shirebrook Academy and will be completing the tough challenge on April 5 to raise money for the school’s summer trip to Namibia.
They will attempt to climb Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, in under 12 hours. All three peaks form part of the Pennine range and are in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
