Our School is vibrant, purposeful and inclusive.  We demand commitment and have high expectations of both students and staff. As a team, we are committed to delivering high quality teaching and learning in a supportive and caring environment.

Kirkby College Academy is a community school, as such, it is important to us that students, parents and staff are highly valued.  The latest Ofsted report (July 2018) stated that “leaders and managers are taking effective action towards the removal of special measures”.  It is imperative that we all work together to ensure that the young people we serve can be successful.  We work hard to build a culture of excellence through a range of opportunities which prepare students for life in the 21st Century.
