Don Valley Academy Ethos
At Don Valley Academy our ethos is ‘Changing lives through belief and collaboration, by being kind and our best learners’. We believe that our core purpose as an academy is to prepare our students for life after secondary education, by ensuring that they are equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to lead successful lives. To prepare our students for their future we work tirelessly to develop their character, cultural understanding and resilience, thus enabling them to achieve excellent qualifications and live successful and fulfilling lives. At Don Valley Academy, we work collaboratively with our students to ensure that they are all able to learn in a happy, safe and caring environment. Whilst there is a strong emphasis on academic achievement at Don Valley Academy, we also encourage our students to take part in our extra-curricular programme, which offers a wide variety of experiences outside our regular curriculum.
