Welcome to Don Valley Academy

We are incredibly proud to be able to share with you that following our recent Ofsted inspection the school has been rated as GOOD.

The academy is on an incredible journey to ensure we are providing an exceptional education to the community we serve. This report is a positive endorsement that we are achieving this goal and we are proud to celebrate this with you.

“The mission of Don Valley is ‘changing lives’. In a short period of time, leaders have already ensured that this mission is realised for many pupils at school.”  

We will continue to grow and drive the academy forward ensuring that the academy goes from strength to strength.

“There is a ‘buzz’ at school, and pupils are caught up in the positivity that exudes from leaders, teachers and other members of staff.”  

 The full Ofsted report is available to read here or on the parent section of our website, under letters/forms.
