Values and vision 

Nunthorpe Academy believes that success is built through the partnership between parents, staff and students. Its curriculum has a rigorous academic core with the ability to offer a range of vocational-based courses. 

Academic studies are supported by a comprehensive pastoral programme to ensure students are equipped with the necessary skills to move on into the world of work or further study. Nunthorpe Academy endeavours to be known for excellence, choice, diversity and quality. 

The secondary school has a five-house system and within this it operates Vertical Tutoring; this means that each tutor group contains approximately three to four students from each of Years 7-11. This allows students of all ages to mix more freely and learn to work with people outside of their normal peer group.   

Ofsted report 

“The excellent curriculum abounds with opportunities so students have numerous pathways to success. They are encouraged to develop special interests and talents during Wednesday afternoon ‘Option 4’ creative curriculum time. These sessions are hugely popular with students and make a massive contribution to their excellent spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.”
