Welcome to the Sheffield Park Academy website.
I hope that you find it useful and informative and that it gives you an insight into our unique and friendly school.
With almost 1,200 pupils aged between 11 and 18 housed in our purpose built, £30m facilities, the academy is a busy and vibrant place. The colourful display of the national flags of our students’ countries of origin in our main atrium illustrates the rich diversity of our student body, with over 50 countries represented and languages spoken.
Our sports, technologies and performing arts facilities are modern, well equipped and provide fantastic opportunities for our talented and creative youngsters, in all manner of activities, both within the curriculum and outside school hours.
The academy’s sustained academic success has been recognised locally and nationally and we are pleased to have been identified as one of the top 25 schools in the country for pupil progress in research carried out by the New Schools Network in 2017.
We encourage all of our students to aspire to our ethos of ‘the best in everyone’, which is underpinned by our core values of ambition, confidence, creativity, respect, enthusiasm and determination.
As a successful, outward-facing academy, we are proud of our links with other schools locally, and nationally as part of United Learning. As well as providing support and training to others, we are determined to keep improving, learning and developing ourselves and work closely with a range of partners in education and industry in support of this aim.
Should you wish to see for yourselves, we would be delighted to welcome you into the school. We very much look forward to working with you as we continue to strive for academic excellence, bringing out the very best in your child.
Mrs D McShane
