It gives us great pleasure to inform you that Darton Academy is the top performing school in Barnsley and the surrounding local area. Darton Academy is now placed at the top of the DfE Local Authority Tables.

The provisional data released today confirms that Darton Academy has made exceptional progress in achieving a high standard of results going from -0.46 in 2018 to +0.39 in 2019 meaning that every student is attaining nearly half a grade better than their peers nationally (compared to 2018 student leavers who attained half a grade less).

These results are testament to the hard work and commitment of our outstanding students and staff. We are immensely proud of them all.  Validated results will be out January 2020

We would like to thank members of the school and wider community for their unwavering support on our journey of rapid school improvement.

Yours sincerely
