Sheffield Park Academy is determined to bring out the best in everyone – students, staff and the whole school community. We seek to ensure an inclusive and welcoming learning environment for students of all faiths, backgrounds and abilities and to set high expectations for what every child can achieve with us.
Don’t just take our word for it though…. Here is what some of our students and other stakeholders have said:
‘Behaviour in the school is good. There is a calm, purposeful atmosphere in both classrooms and around the school.’ – Ofsted 2017
‘Pupils say they feel safe in all areas of the school and clearly appreciate the strong staff presence around the campus.’ – Ofsted 2017
‘Outstanding resources and support enable us to reach our goals’ – Lashmy, VI Form pupil
‘Teachers are willing to go the extra mile’ – Aseel , VI Form pupil
Education with character
Whilst academic success is very important, at Sheffield Park Academy we believe that there is more to a good education. As well as ensuring our students succeed in exams, we aim to develop character, compassion and service. Throughout their time at Sheffield Park Academy, students are expected to contribute to our school community and to society. We want students to try things they cannot do, to persist in the face of difficulty and to become resilient in overcoming obstacles.
With this in mind, we provide a breadth of opportunities and experiences which seek to help our students become confident, well-rounded and ambitious young adults. Our curriculum and enrichment programme is overflowing with opportunities to try something new and develop new skills. In addition to our very wide range of extracurricular clubs, our students enjoy trips, university visits, talks from inspirational speakers from the worlds of medicine, law and business as well as countless opportunities to collaborate with their peers at United Learning schools across the country.
We are incredibly proud to deliver an Education with Character; an education which challenges, inspires and excites our students and prepares them for the ups and downs of life.
