Sheffield Park Academy is part of United Learning, a national group of schools and academies which are united in their mission to bring out ‘the best in everyone’ and improve the life chances of the children and young people in their care.
We pride ourselves on a team of staff who are supportive, friendly and dedicated to providing the very best teaching and learning for our students. Staff across the academy set a culture of high expectations and continuous improvement for students which, in turn, is reflected in the emphasis we place on continuing professional development (CPD) for our staff.
We have made significant, sustained progress at GCSE and are proud to be the most improved secondary school in Sheffield over the last nine years. In August 2016 63.1% of students achieved at least five good GCSEs including English and maths, our Progress 8 score of 0.94 means that we are ranked first in Sheffield and ninth in the country, with results in our Sixth Form also improving. Nevertheless, we are committed to further development in both teaching and learning.
The academy is situated in purpose-built £30million premises, benefitting from excellent, state-of-the-art facilities and situated within ten minutes of major transport links in the city. As part of United Learning, staff and students are able to access professional development, shared experiences and national opportunities with colleagues and others from across the country. Likewise, as part of a cluster of United Learning academies in the area, there are significant opportunities for joint working, career development and leadership positions.
