Why choose us
As a thriving and ambitious academy, with a focus on continuous improvement, we are determined to deliver an excellent education for every one of our students.
We look to provide the support, nurture and challenge that they need to enjoy their learning, develop as individuals and, ultimately, to achieve their full academic potential.
An inclusive and welcoming learning environment for students of all faiths, backgrounds and abilities, we are committed to bringing out ‘the best in everyone’ – students, staff and the whole school community.
Our sustained academic success has seen the school rise to the top of Sheffield’s league tables, receiving ministerial praise for our Progress 8 performance, which puts us in the top 5% of schools nationally. This new measure records pupil progress from the end of primary school to the end of their GCSEs and demonstrates the impact of an education at Sheffield Park Academy compared to one at many other schools.
Our VI Form also continues to go from strength to strength, with Summer 2018 seeing all our students going on to university, employment or apprenticeships and more and more students taking rigorous, academic A Levels.
As part of United Learning, our staff and students are also able to access a wider range of opportunities than any single school could offer. For students, this means local, regional and national involvement in a variety of academic, enrichment and sporting initiatives. For staff, this includes professional development, training and networking opportunities, ensuring that we continue to improve and innovate our classroom practice.
But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what some of our students and stakeholders have said about us:
