Welcome to Don Valley Academy

Principal's Message 

It is another very busy but exciting time here at Don Valley Academy, with many things to look forward to. On 18th January, 51 students attended our second Movie and Pizza Evening to celebrate their 100% attendance for the Autumn Term.  Students chose the Movie and an enjoyable evening was had by all. 

Attendance is really  important and can make a big impact of achievement.  We continue to promote excellent attendance at the Academy by launching our new incentive ‘Fabulous February’. Every student who achieves 100% attendance from 1st – 28th February (which is 15 school days) is entered into a draw to win £20 cash.  The VMG with the best attendance in each continent will also win a free breakfast…. “TEAM"! ……. Together Everyone Achieves More!

Year 11 students are working hard in preparation for their examinations this summer.  With only 12 weeks to go until the first exam, we will be holding a Revision Skills Evening on Tuesday 27th February  from 3.00 p.m. – 5.00 p.m.  Revision Tips, stalls offering advice and support, A Parents’ Survival Guide and much more.  Every student who attends this evening will received a free pack of revision essentials worth £20.  

On 30th January, we held our Options Information Evening for Year 8 students, this was a hugely successful and informative evening for all who attended.

We will be welcoming our Primary Partners into the Academy on 19th February as we host the Primary Inset Training day.  This will be an excellent opportunity to showcase our Academy to the staff of our partnership schools.

On 8th February, 51 students will be invited to have brunch with me to celebrate their hard work and the progress they are making. 

The Academy continues to move forward at pace … we are look forward to exciting times ahead, including the Graduation Ceremony, Y7 Residential to Kingswood and the annual Y11 Prom.
