About Us

Don Valley Academy serves the Toll Bar, Bentley, Arksey and Scawthorpe areas in the north of Doncaster. We are a larger than average school with over 1200 students on roll and 200 staff. We work closely with our partner academies in the area: Ash Hill, De Warenne, Rossington All Saints and Serlby Park, as well as a number of primary partners. This partnership allows for the sharing of excellent practice which is hugely important as continuing staff development is a key priority for us.

Our main sponsor is the Delta Academies Trust and our other trust partners are: Cambridge University, NHS Doncaster and The Pilot Theatre Company.

With them, we aim to provide a first class learning experience and a broad curriculum for every student so that they:

  • Enjoy their learning.
  • Achieve the best possible qualifications.
  • Be confident and ambitious.
  • Have the values and beliefs to lead full and healthy lives.
  • Be caring towards others.
  • Make the most of their individual talents.
  • Be well prepared for further study and the world of work.
