About Astrea Academy Sheffield
We are an all-through academy in Sheffield, and this is our fourth year since opening. September 2022 brings an exciting time for us – it has gone so quickly! It is key to understand the context of our wonderful academy.
We are a city centre school, where we serve the local community of Burngreave. 98.5% of our cohort are from Ethnic Minority Groups, 55% of our pupils are disadvantaged, with 46% currently receiving Free School Meals (national is 13.3%). Children with SEN represent 21% of the cohort. The catchment area of the academy is within the 2.5% most deprived areas within the country. This is why we do what we do. We are here to ensure all children receive the outstanding education and life chances that they are entitled to.
The Academy opened its doors for the first time in September 2018 and will in time be a 2 – 18 provision. We welcomed our first children in nursery, reception and year 7 as well as a brand new compliment of staff. Since then we have grown each year, and we currently have 600 children, spanning years 7, 8 and 9 in our secondary building and nursery, reception, year 1 & 2 in the primary building.
Our ground breaking campus is truly breath-taking. With the combination of a Grade II listed building and a brand new building, there is a real physical heritage to our new school. With an investment in excess of £25 million, our facilities are cutting edge, including science and technology laboratories, modern classrooms, a 300-seat hall, 4G pitch, an underground sports hall, outside Amphitheatre and forest school learning area (to name a few). Our location is at the heart of a new learning community which will continue to grow as we forge these ever essential relationships with families and businesses in the area.
We work within a supportive learning community of staff, parents and children, enabling a world of learning opportunities which will inspire and motivate scholars of Astrea Academy Sheffield to achieve excellence and create the successful path for their future. We are creating an academy where each day will be a journey of discovery to fire their imagination, establish their sense of worth, and to gain the confidence and courage to take a full part in the wider world.
