The Pingle Academy is an 11–19 co-educational, comprehensive school. We became an academy in May 2017 and joined The de Ferrers Trust. Our over-subscribed academy is the academy of choice in the local area and enjoys an excellent local reputation.

We are proud of our caring and inclusive community, and our values of WORK HARD, BE KIND, CHOOSE WISELY are present in all aspects of academy life.

Our academy is a community where there is a shared responsibility for creating a safe and pleasant place to work. Staff are dedicated to ensuring that The Pingle Academy is inclusive in all areas, and we are proud of our efforts to educate and care for all our students, whatever their abilities, to ensure that every student’s potential is fulfilled.

In 2019, the academy enjoyed its best-ever results both at GCSE and A Level. In October 2021, OFSTED judged the academy as GOOD in all areas.

Our priority is to help parents/carers prepare their children for adult lives in a rapidly changing world. We aim to provide a broad and stimulating curriculum, to set the highest standards of work and behaviour and to encourage students to aspire to these standards with confidence.

We value our staff, ensuring that we look after and care for their wellbeing through professional development, mental health provision and supporting staff with their workload.
