About The Laurel Academy

Who Are We?

The Laurel Academy is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form located in Mexborough, South Yorkshire. The Laurel has been sponsored by Delta Academies Trust since November 2018. The aim of the school is to help each and every one of the students develop into mature and confident young people who are fully prepared for life beyond the Academy. We are extremely aspirational for our students both academically and in relation to personal development - each student is treated as an individual and we do not place limits on what we think they can achieve. All students are unique and have a valuable contribution to make to our Academy. We insist on the highest standards of behaviour and believe in an ethos of respect, courtesy, tolerance and hard work. We foster a ‘can do’ attitude where students are encouraged to move out of their comfort zone, participate in new experiences and not to fear failure. This, coupled with our state of the art facilities in a recently built and well equipped building, creates an environment where students flourish.

Why Join our Academy?

The Laurel Academy is an 11 -16 Academy of 660 pupils serving the town of Mexborough and its surrounding area. The Laurel has a rich history within the town since it was established in 1904 and has numerous notable alumni including Poet Laureate Ted Hughes. Mexborough is an ex mining town with a strong sense of community and some wonderful pupils. People who visit the Academy always comment on the excellent behaviour and conduct of the pupils and the welcoming ethos of the Academy. The Laurel is a great place to work where you can make a real difference to the lives of young people.
