Values and vision
Droylsden Academy is built on three core values: politeness, hard work and honesty. The secondary school encourages pupils to treat everyone and everything as they would wish to be treated and to be respectful, polite and courteous at all times.
“This is an improving academy which is well led by an executive headteacher and a headteacher, who are instilling high expectations and aspirations for students and staff. Senior and middle leadership has been strengthened and this has given the academy greater capacity for further and more rapid improvement. Students are making better progress and their attainment is improving. An above-average percentage of students make expected progress in English. Work with outstanding schools has helped the academy to plan for improvement and has had a positive impact on the academy practices. Students’ behaviour is good. They are eager to learn and are increasingly embracing a stronger work ethos. The academy is a safe and caring community.”
