Our Academy

Welcome from the Principal 

I am delighted to introduce you to the City of Derby Academy. I am proud to be the Acting Principal of this Academy which is sponsored by the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust.

At the Academy we are determined that our students are able to achieve well and leave us as confident, compassionate and articulate young people with the skills to support them through the rest of their lives. Through high standards in teaching and pastoral care we expect to prepare our students well for entrance to higher education, high quality employment and the future careers of their choice.

We will foster a caring, supportive and happy environment which will encourage our students to flourish. In terms of behaviour, uniform and Academy standards we are very traditional and have high expectations. We expect pupils to wear the full Academy uniform correctly, attend well, behave respectfully to others and to work hard.

We also believe that education is more than just academic success and aim to develop the whole person with a broad, balanced curriculum, a wide range of extra-curricular activities which we encourage all students to take part in, as well a wide range of events during the year.

If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

I look forward to welcoming you to the City of Derby Academy.

Ms S Bates 
Acting Principal
