ALLRoads is the highways contracting arm of Derbyshire County Council. As the main sponsor for Shirebrook Academy, it is working with Sheffield Hallam University, our higher education partner, to deliver significant improvements to education standards and provide a rich, all-round school experience for students. This will be achieved through a culture of supportive learning, respect for all and self-discipline.
ALLRoads will provide financial assistance of £2 million to the Academy, which can be used directly for learning-based activity. It is anticipated that this will include:
Residential experiences at home and abroad
Educational and cultural visits
Sponsorship to further and higher education
Business mentoring, and
Work experience opportunities.
We are to expand our specialist subject portfolio to include Construction as well as Science, giving ALLRoads the opportunity to share its knowledge and expertise in this area with students, via a range of training and employment routes.
The Sponsors will also form an Academy Trust made up of the partners working together to benefit the school.
