Firbeck Academy is a proud and caring school, a special place where we seek to meet the best interests of the children in our care.

By providing a caring ethos within an engaging and challenging curriculum, staff encourage children to enjoy learning whilst developing the skills which will support them in growing up to be caring, independent, responsible people and life-long learners.

"As a school that serves a richly diverse community, we take our responsibility to promote community cohesion, generate a respect for difference and individual rights seriously. A ‘challenging’ curriculum encourages pupils to reflect upon their role in a diverse society. In all aspects of our curriculum we reflect and discuss the implications of what it means to be British.

I hope that this website will provide useful information for all those interested in our school. Should you require any further information about the school, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to help in any way we can.

Thank you for visiting!

Head of School

Firbeck Academy promotes British values through; a school council whose members are actively involved in the democratic process; a geography curriculum that covers global citizenship; a religious education curriculum that teaches about the shared values that religion can promote.

We also believe that we can best achieve the highest possible outcomes our pupils by working closely with parents and carers. The school doesn’t work in isolation and encourages all parents to take an active part in the education of their children. The partnership between school staff, parents, governors and other stakeholders is an essential and a valued one.

"At Firbeck Academy we are committed to creating a happy, secure and stimulating environment in which every child can achieve their potential and develop a life-long love of learning.

Our dedicated staff team are incredibly hard working and committed to ensuring that they improve the life chances of all children in our care, often going above and beyond to ensure that children are able to achieve all that they are capable of.

We are very proud of our school and the fact that the warmth and friendliness of both our staff and pupils is often commented upon by visitors."
