Welcome to Alford Academy

Alford Academy – an Ambitious School Community

Welcome to the new Alford Academy website.  This website provides key information on our work and highlights the achievements of our pupils.  During your visit to our website you may  find some areas ‘still under construction’ however I hope you enjoy your visit and find the information you are looking for. If there is any information you cannot find, please contact us and we will be very happy to help.

Alford Academy is a vibrant learning community, renowned for its care of, and ambition for, our young people. Recently our school has been working through a period of significant change, including our school day/week, our curriculum and – not least – the move in October 2015 to our new Alford Community Campus. Our new home is providing us with wonderful new learning spaces and fantastic opportunities to work ever more closely with our campus partners to achieve even more for our young people.

What has not changed is our vision for our young people. Alford Academy recognises that one size does not fit all. Our young people are born individuals and should leave school as individuals. Alford Academy is committed to unlocking each youngster’s potential, raising their aspirations and helping them to be all they can be, in a safe, healthy and caring environment.

Senior leaders and school staff are committed to working together with pupils, parents, businesses and organisations to achieve the very best for each young person at Alford Academy.  We believe that all our young people can succeed through hard work, and we place great value on the personal development of each young person, so that they are equipped with the skills, knowledge, resilience and drive to achieve in and beyond Alford Academy.

Thank you for visiting our website.
