“Leaders put pupils’ interests at the heart of all that they do” - Ofsted 2021 Having converted to academy status at the heart of the L.E.A.D. Academy Trust in May 2017, Da Vinci Academy is now a successful secondary school with around 700 students and an increasing school roll (oversubscribed in KS3 and also next year’s intake). In summer 2019, we were proud to be the most improved Progress 8 school in Derby and in October 2021, we were rated ‘good’ by Ofsted. A copy of the report can be found on our website. We are described as a ‘proudly inclusive school with a big heart and huge ambition’. A student-centred philosophy is supported by an unwavering commitment to the achievement of successful outcomes for each and every young person. “The school is inclusive and welcoming to all. Pupils feel valued and cared for.” Together with the L.E.A.D. Academy Trust, a strong and clear vision is in place - one team changing worlds. Our vision is achieved by supporting all to Aspire, Believe, Learn, Achieve. This is what we all firmly believe in and strive for at all times. The benefit of our close-knit academy community is a real team environment where people genuinely care for each other and where students and staff alike can really shine.
