Welcome Message

A very warm welcome to our website!


Our state-of-the-art, brand new £12 million building ensures that we offer our students the very best 21st Century learning experience. Our fantastic learning environment not only enhances the classroom experience but enables us to offer a range of exciting enrichment activities.

There is a “buzz” and enthusiasm about the academy and a strong sense of optimism and pride in the academy’s successes and in our capacity to develop and improve.

We pride ourselves in ensuring that all of our students will reach their full potential, both academically and socially. Therefore, our teaching and support staff are carefully recruited, are of the highest quality, and are dedicated, caring and committed professionals.

Our year groups have a maximum of 150 students to ensure that we know all of our young people so we can meet their individual needs. We pride ourselves on the good relationships that exist across the academy which are based on trust, teamwork and respect. We strive to develop leadership skills in our students and we provide opportunities for the student voice to be heard.

One of the benefits of being a Kearsley Academy student is that we offer personalised education up to the age of 19. Our Sixth Form A-Level results were also our best ever results for the third year running. All of our students who applied for University secured places this summer!

As well as raising standards, Kearsley Academy is committed to promoting excellent links with our partner primary schools in the local community and beyond. Transition from primary school to secondary is a real strength of the academy – our students feel safe, happy and well supported.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Governors, Staff, students and parents for all the hard work which is going on to enable us to be successful in establishing ourselves as the number one choice for secondary education in the local community.

May I extend a warm invitation to visit the school and experience the “buzz” of learning in our vibrant community!
