Nunthorpe Academy is a high performing 11-19 Academy that prides itself on the support and guidance given to every one of our students.

We value our positive relations between staff and students and are proud of our friendly and purposeful atmosphere. Acknowledging and rewarding excellent behaviour, hard work, personal responsibility and participation are integral to our high levels of achievement.

A key ingredient in our continued success is recruiting and retaining the very best staff who are committed to our students. High quality classroom practice is crucial in supporting students’ academic success. We ensure that teaching staff are engaged in thoughtful reflection and collaborative training as part of our drive towards further improvement.

We believe that success is built through partnership between parents, staff and students and welcome the views of all of our stakeholders for the further development and increased ‘aspirations’ of all who attend the Academy. In addition, we have a well established Parent Voice Group.

Our curriculum is based on a rigorous academic core but with the ability to offer a range of vocationally based courses. This means every student can follow a pathway to success. Our curriculum develops the knowledge and skills for future success and we are proud of the high number of our students who further their studies at Colleges and Universities.

We have an enviable reputation for excellence in all that we do. This was echoed in our most recent ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted report. Our GCSE and A Level results are some of the best in the area and has led to our enhanced status as the lead school of the North East Schools Training Alliance (NESTA) – teaching the ‘teachers’ of the future.

Nunthorpe Academy is not just a place of learning for our young people. Through Nunthorpe Learning and Leisure, almost 2,000 members of our community access our facilities for sport and leisure, as well as enhancing and developing their own education and skills.

I am very proud of our Academy and know that we are striving towards further successes. We welcome you to come and visit us, speak to our staff and students and get a feel for what life at Nunthorpe Academy is really like.
