Welcome

Welcome to Don Valley Academy

At Don Valley Academy we believe that our core purpose is to prepare young people to enter a fast moving and rapidly changing environment. To prepare them for such a challenge we work to develop their skills, knowledge and resilience which in turn will enable them to achieve the highest possible qualifications. 

Don Valley Academy works with the students to ensure that they learn in a happy and caring environment. Whilst there is a strong emphasis on academic achievement all students are encouraged to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities outside the classroom.  It is essential for our success to maintain high standards at all times and this is only possible with collaboration between staff, parents, and students.  Our challenge is to provide the global education that gives our students the tools necessary to compete in the world market and by working together we can do this. 

I look forward to the opportunity of meeting and working with you to ensure your child receives the best possible chance of achieving their full potential. 

Richard Brooke
