Welcome

Welcome to Darton Academy

Darton Academy is a happy and successful school where students are valued, regardless of their background or ability.  We treat our young people with respect, and we give them all the opportunity to achieve their full potential.  Our goal is for all students to leave us as happy, well-qualified, confident young adults who go on to excel in local sixth-forms, colleges, universities, and the wider world.

Since joining Delta Academies Trust in May 2018, significant improvements have occurred and students, staff and parents were delighted after receiving record breaking results this summer. Students are now achieving over half a grade better than their peers nationally and this will see the school as one of the most improved in the country.

Along with our focus on academic achievement, we firmly believe that opportunities beyond the classroom also play a critical part in the development and achievement of our students. These broaden horizons, grow esential life skills, build self-confidence and resillience, increase friendship groups - and they're fun too. At Darton Academy we combine high expectations and high standards with a strong sense of kindness, inclusitivity and enjoyment.  Our primary focus is to instil a lifelong love of learning, and encourage all students to be respectful, determined, hard-working, confident and ambitious.  It is very important to us that we maintain a close relationship with parents and carers as education is a partnership between school and home.

Elaine Briggs, Associate Principal
