Welcome to Shirebrook Academy website. We are committed to ensuring that every Shirebrook Academy student meets their maximum potential and we will equip all of them with the best possible education during their time with us, so that they are fully prepared to succeed in their chosen careers and be active and responsible citizens of the society in which they live and work.
Shirebrook Academy is at the heart of the Shirebrook community; working to raise aspirations and to improve the future prosperity and regeneration of the local area. We want to encourage community use of the Academy, and when we move to state-of-the-art new buildings this will further develop opportunities for community activities and involvement.
The new Academy offers a rare opportunity for a group of students transferring to secondary school. They can grow with us as we expand in size and they will have the opportunity to stay on at the Academy until they are 18 as we develop our post-16 provision. We want to offer courses in our specialist subjects and support the collaborative model of learning across North-East Derbyshire for post-16 provision. We have an exceptional sponsor in ALLRoads, the highways contracting arm of Derbyshire County Council. In addition we are privileged to have Sheffield Hallam University working with us as our educational partner. Both are committed to supporting our dual specialisms of Science and Construction. They will provide substantial additional resources to develop new and exciting opportunities for learning and work experience.
Our aspiration is for the Academy to be a confident and caring environment that will equip your child for life in the future. Students at Shirebrook Academy will be given opportunities to gain confidence as they grow into young adults. They will be listened to and be expected to listen. They will be given responsibility and will be expected to take it on. They will be given excellent advice and guidance and we hope they will pass that on to others while making the best use of it themselves. I genuinely look forward to meeting you and to working with you and your child in the future
