The Discovery Academy is one of the largest academies in the area, boasting a £21 million building with world class facilities and belonging to a forward-thinking Trust, encompassing a number of successful local schools.

Our purpose is to deliver ambitious, high quality teaching and learning, every lesson, every day, overcoming inequality and allowing every student to achieve success”. As an academy we have created a culture centred around our core values of Pride, Respect and Commitment to ensure high expectations, positive relationships and support for all our students.

I believe having high expectations of behaviour and attitudes enables teachers to teach and students to develop in a caring, supportive environment.

The Discovery Academy Ethos and Values

Everyone will demonstrate Pride, Respect and Commitment Everywhere, Every time because…


We take pride in everything that we do every day through hard work, taking personal responsibility and completing everything that is asked of us to the highest standard.
