Welcome to The Farnley Academy

I am delighted to welcome you to our new website which celebrates our many achievements and provides key information about the life and work of our academy for those keen to know more about our exceptional school.

In four short years, the fortunes of our academy have been transformed with the percentage of students gaining five or more GCSEs at grades A*-C including English and mathematics rising sharply from 32% to 73%. In 2014, 84% of students made or exceeded expected progress in English and 85% in mathematics. This is an enormous achievement, placing the academy amongst the very best schools in the country. Our mission is simple – to create an environment which is free from cynicism and unwilling to put limits on what young people can achieve.

In December 2013 the excellence of our work was recognised by Ofsted who judged the Academy to be Outstanding in all areas. Inspectors noted that 'the quality of teaching is outstanding. Much is inspirational. As a result, students display a rare thirst for learning and an eagerness to succeed.' A copy of the full report is available to download from this website.

Working together as a team, young people and professionals are dedicated and passionate about learning and making progress together.

Lessons are highly personalised and cater for the needs of all learners including the most able, those who qualify for the pupil premium, SEND and young people who may not speak English as a first language. As a smaller than average secondary school, students and staff know each other very well and this makes an important contribution to the excellent relationships we enjoy and the outstanding results we attain.

Visitors to our academy always comment on how welcoming and friendly our school is. This comes from our pride in what we have achieved together and our eagerness to share this with others. As a strategic partner in the Leeds City Teaching School Alliance, we welcome significant numbers of trainee teachers to our academy each year and also work closely with other schools to support their transformations. In 2013, one of our Specialist Leaders in Education was deployed to a Leeds secondary school where they improved A*-C results in mathematics by 12%.

I hope that this website gives you a flavour of just how exciting it is to be part of all that we are achieving at The Farnley Academy. Of course, we know that a website can only go so far and would therefore encourage you to make an appointment to come and experience our remarkable academy for yourself!
