About Discovery Academy

At the Discovery Academy our guiding principle is to ‘expect excellence’ in everything that we do, to ensure our students ‘Aspire’. ‘Aspire’ represents the aims, values and behaviours that we strive towards (Ambitious; Skilled; Positive; Independent; Respectful; Equipped) and our curriculum is designed to support students in reaching these. Alongside a curriculum that offers breadth and ambition, strong pastoral support ensures students are kept safe and are well looked after and ensures a sense of family is felt throughout the Academy.

The Academy boasts outstanding facilities, a state-of-the-art learning environment and was judged ‘Good’ following an inspection by Ofsted in January 2019. Our growth programme includes a £2 million additional teaching facility, as well as the benefits a large Academy can offer, such as a comprehensive professional development and leadership opportunities.
