Accrington Academy has a strong local reputation and has been oversubscribed for several years. We are a successful school, with expanding 11-18 provision, and the majority of students spend their entire journey with us. We seek to provide outstanding education and bring out ‘The best in everyone’ every single day for Key Stages 3, 4 and 5.

We are incredibly proud to deliver a curriculum which combines powerful knowledge and outstanding examination results with Education with Character; an education which challenges, inspires and excites our students and prepares them for the ups and downs of life. With this in mind, we provide a breadth of opportunities and experiences which seek to help our students become confident, well-rounded and ambitious young adults. Our curriculum and enrichment programme is overflowing with opportunities to try something new and develop new skills.

Under recent new leadership, the academy continues to go from strength to strength, with passionate staff who are willing to go the ‘extra mile’ seeing and treating every student as an individual.  The environment in which we work is modern and vibrant with first class facilities.

With Accrington Academy being part of one of the leading school groups in the country, we offer unrivalled career development opportunities and support to ensure you achieve your ambitions.  We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme and benefits scheme including childcare vouchers, a car lease scheme, cycle to work scheme and an on-site gym which is free for all staff to use.

We welcome visits to our school so that you can experience the warm and welcoming atmosphere for yourself.
