There’s something for everyone at Accrington Academy, with an exciting and aspirational 11-18 curriculum delivering innovative and engaging learning, plus a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities for students, staff, parents and the wider community including activities, events and competitions.

Our aim is to bring out ‘The Best in Everyone’ – students, staff, parents and the local community. We have developed a culture of ‘hard work’ and ‘dedication’ from our students and staff alike, where high expectations and a desire for success are standard and everyone is proud to belong to Accrington Academy. We believe that everyone at the Academy can be outstanding and we seek to draw out the full potential in everyone.

At Accrington Academy you will find a vibrant, happy and successful environment, delivering the highest standard of education and nurturing individual’s talent and skills.

Whilst academic success is very important, at Accrington Academy we believe that there is more to a good education. As well as ensuring our students succeed in exams, we aim to develop character, compassion and service. Throughout their time at Accrington Academy, students are expected to contribute to our school community and to society. We want students to try things they cannot do, to persist in the face of difficulty and to become resilient in overcoming obstacles.

With this in mind, we provide a breadth of opportunities and experiences which seek to help our students become confident, well-rounded and ambitious young adults. Our curriculum and enrichment programme is overflowing with opportunities to try something new and develop new skills. In addition to our very wide range of extracurricular clubs, our students enjoy trips to the West End, London Dance Shows, Jamie’s Farm, they have also had the opportunity to travel abroad to Iceland, Barcelona, Auschwitz and New York.  We have many university visits, talks from inspirational speakers from the worlds of medicine, law and business as well as countless opportunities to collaborate with their peers at United Learning schools across the country.
