Welcome

Welcome to Don Valley Academy

A ‘good’ Ofsted report was celebrated at Don Valley Academy – the first time it has been judged higher than ‘requires improvement’ since it opened eight years ago. Students, staff, the leadership team, the Academy Advisory Body and Delta Academies Trust were praised by inspectors following their visit in April.

The staff, students and local community deserve a huge amount of credit for their work and commitment, which goes above and beyond the classroom. I would like to thank them, the Trust and everyone who has played a part in helping transform this school.  

I was particularly pleased to see inspectors highlight we have been successful in our mission at Don Valley of ‘Changing Lives’. 

Our students have been our focus in the changes made over the past 18 months. Our outcomes have improved and will get better.” 

“This is now a good school!”
