Welcome to Sheffield Park Academy
I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. My name is Roland Freeman and I am honoured to be the Principal of Sheffield Park Academy. I firmly believe that human potential is limitless and that whatever the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve as long as the requisite knowledge and attitude is present.
We are therefore a values driven school and expect all members of our school community to embody our core values of ambition, knowledge and determination. This is underpinned by a culture of leadership at all levels. We are on a journey to become the best school in Sheffield with a vision to create Sheffield’s influential young leaders of tomorrow who achieve more than society might ever expect them to achieve.
Leaders should lead by example and I make no apology for our high expectations for attendance, punctuality and completion of work. We also expect students to behave exceptionally well and show respect for all members of the school community at all times. Leaders should also show good character and ‘education with character’ is a central part of what we do; good grades are important but good character, that positively impacts students’ lives, those they interact with and the world around them is even more so.
Over the last 3 years, the achievement of our students is above those with similar starting points and our provision at KS5 has resulted in an increasing number of students attending the country’s most prestigious universities. The school also benefits from the support and expertise of being part of the United Learning group, the largest school Trusts in the UK with a proven track record of school improvement and some of the highest achieving schools in the UK.
If you have high ambitions for your child and expect them to learn in a calm and orderly environment based on high expectations and values driven character education, then please feel free to contact us.
Thank you for your interest and I look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful school.
Mr R. Freeman
