Kearsley Academy

Preparing for the future

Our Academy

A very warm welcome to our website!


Welcome to Kearsley Academy!

We know that the site is the first point of call for many people new to the academy and a regular destination for those who work with us more closely. As a consequence, we want this to be a friendly and informative site which gives visitors detailed information about us in an appealing, interesting and exciting way. We also hope the site keeps you up to date with the latest news and events from the the academy.

In September 2012 we became part of the Northern Education Trust (NET), a multi-academy trust, which provides us with additional resource and expertise. Kearsley Academy has a close working relationship and federation with other NET institutions of which I support as Executive Principal.

You only get one chance in life and it is our responsibility to ensure that at Kearsley Academy, each student has the best possible education - whatever their starting point.

We achieve this by having exceptionally high expectations of teaching staff and students as well as focusing on the importance of always striving to do better; to try harder. At the same time we are determined to deliver an all-round educational experience which sets us apart from other schools and makes us amongst the best nationally and internationally.

We want students to wear their uniform with pride; to show an eagerness to learn and enjoy playing their part within the whole academy society. We expect our students to be polite and well behaved at all times, arriving punctually for every lesson and showing consideration for others.

As a student at Kearsley Academy you will be coming to a school that has a stimulating and exciting environment - where we will not only do our level best to ensure you achieve yours, but one where you will also have the time of your life.

I feel extremely privileged to be the Executive Principal and hope our website will help you to find out more about us.
