Our Academy is sponsored by the Christopher Nieper Education Trust (previously David Nieper Education Trust), together with local employer partners, who are highly committed in supporting the development and achievements of our students. With a clearly defined approach to teaching, applied learning and brand-new purpose-built facilities, which opened in February 2017, we believe that this is a truly exciting time to join the academy. We are a growing academy now of 780 students 11-18 and will soon be at our full capacity of 850 students 11-18. This role is a new post due to our growing pupil numbers. Our September 2022 Ofsted Inspection graded the academy as ‘Good in all areas’, a fantastic improvement from the ‘inadequate’ Ofsted rating when we took over the academy - and we endeavour to build on this as we grow and develop further. We are currently the only academy within the Trust however the Trust is likely to grow in the very near future with a number of other schools actively looking to join.
