Our vision is founded upon key values – Ambition, Respect, Responsibility and Pride. These underpin the attitudes, relationships, work and lives of all members of Armthorpe Academy and its community.

We insist upon a relentless focus upon excellence in learning and achievement, supported by ambitious expectations. Our aim is to maximise individual potential and ensure that all young people invest in their learning and are well equipped to meet the challenges of education, work and life.

We believe that every member of the school community matters, and we are entirely committed to the provision of a safe, caring, inclusive and supportive environment. Respect for the individual, parity of esteem and celebration of success at all levels are given the highest priority.

We expect every academy member to demonstrate a sense of responsibility for his or her own:

  • academic / professional development,
  • personal and social development and progress,
  • attitudes and behaviour,
  • as well as the aspirations, performance and success of the academy.

We want our community to see us as a thriving, optimistic and forward looking academy to which all members are proud to contribute and belong.

Wishing the best of luck to any of our ex-students collecting A Level results tomorrow. We’d love to know where you are off to next!

Just WOW! Working with @ArmthorpeDN3 and their EA from @nextofficial has been a real pleasure. Students have designed a sofa to fit a brief, presented to experts at NEXT and visted the site to see the winning design be made. #CareersEducation at it's best! #EANbestbits @CareerEnt

Wishing staff & students a wonderful summer break. We’re looking forward to seeing you in September, refreshed & ready for a new academic year @ArmthorpeDN3 @BuileHAcademy @EllesmerePark @heworthgrange @MoorsideHigh @thornhill_uk @WSPost @WyvernAcademy

Magical day at the Harry Potter Experience 🕷

Fab last lesson with Y7s this week at @ArmthorpeDN3 . When revision meets creativity!
