Principal's Message

On behalf of the staff at Don Valley Academy, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our students back into a new academic year.

Over the summer, Don Valley Academy celebrated the best results we have ever achieved, and we are very optimistic that this progress will continue again this year. Our new Year 7 students have arrived and are settling into Academy life and making new friends.

Year 7 Parents/Carers are invited to come along to have breakfast with their child on Friday 28th September at our Breakfast Morning . This will allow you to meet and discuss how your child has settled in, as well as supporting our efforts towards the annual McMillan Coffee Morning fundraising. 

Our annual Open Evening takes place on Tuesday 2nd October, 4pm - 7pm, giving prospective students and their parents/carers the opportunity to come into Academy, to meet students and staff, tour the Academy and experience the amazing teaching and Learning we have to offer. 

Elections for Student President will begin in the next few weeks and candidates will step up their campaign to be elected. I look forward to announcing the results shortly. 

I would like to take this opportunity to mention to parents/carers that Don Valley Academy has an open door policy to invite you to take part in learning walks and see Academy life first hand. If you would like to take this opportunity please contact the Academy to arrange a mutually convenient time.
