Armthorpe Academy is a thriving and welcoming 11-16 academy which is firmly committed to the principle other people matter. Our expectations of students are very high, both in terms of their progress and their behaviour. In particular, we expect them to invest in their own learning, and we encourage them to enjoy and make a positive contribution to the wider life of the academy. They, in turn, can expect from us the highest possible quality of teaching, care and support.

Welcome from the Principal

Thank you for your interest in joining our academy. You would be joining us at an incredibly exciting time in our development. We have recently been judged to be ‘Good’ in all categories by Ofsted and we are in the middle of an extensive building programme that will bring 21st century facilities to the students and staff of Armthorpe.

Armthorpe Academy is part of Consilium Academies Trust and both the academy and trust pride themselves on their inclusive ethos: “a truly inclusive school” (Ofsted Jan ’19). We have an absolute commitment to the personal, social and academic development of every student regardless of their starting point and work tirelessly to ensure that each student is successful.

Our commitment to developing the whole child is bearing fruit as we have had a period of sustained improvement culminating in our pleasing Ofsted outcome. However, we are continuing with our drive to improve as we aim to provide our students with the best education possible, enabling them to progress to the next stage of their education. We are looking for like-minded, dedicated teachers who will provide an outstanding education to the students of Armthorpe and contribute to the ethos of the academy.

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
