About Astrea Academy Dearne

Dear colleague 

I am truly delighted you are interested in joining our hardworking committed team at Astrea Academy Dearne.  It is with great pride that I am able to introduce myself as Principal of the academy and it is a privilege to share with you our ambitious vision for the future.  As a parent first, I am resolutely determined to secure an outstanding provision for our community and to ensure that the children who attend our academy have access to the same futures as my own children. 

Our core vision is that every Astrea Dearne student, no matter what their ability or circumstance, will be developed as an individual during their time at the school and so have the highest aspirations for their own future. The ethos created will ensure every young person is sufficiently successful, academically and personally, to go on to lead an ambitious future of their choice.  They will develop the knowledge, skills and resilience to be 21st Century ready, understanding that through their actions they can positively contribute to society and be driving forces for good. 

The Governors’ vision is that The Dearne, a real community based school and a true community resource, will help develop young people who are proud to attend The Dearne and are proud of their achievements. 

The families who send their children to Astrea Dearne will do so with pride, knowing that this is their school of choice and of academic excellence; that The Dearne is respected for its ambitious aspirations for every child and a knowledge that when a young person attends The Dearne they can go on to achieve great things with their qualifications and their lives. Whether it is utilising Astrea Dearne’s careers, enterprise and business focus or the high academic aspirations held for very able students, every student will reach the full stretch of their ambitious potential without limits. 

If you choose to join us you will become part of a strong morally driven academy that believe in the highest levels of success for all children regardless of their background.  You will be relentless in your commitment and belief in all young people and will ensure only the highest level of academic success and personal fulfilment for all: they deserve nothing less.   

We offer you unrivalled professional development that actively promotes independent research, collaborative working and constructive feedback and solutions.  As an academy working towards a Fair Workload Charter, we will provide unparalleled support and wellbeing strategies and make you feel an integral part of what we call Team Dearne. 

If you share our values and want to make the kind of difference to young people’s lives that challenge social boundaries then we would love to meet you!   

Mrs Joanne Wilson
