About David Nieper Academy
David Nieper Academy is a co-educational secondary academy, formerly known as Alfreton Grange Art College. The school itself was first established in 1939, and adopted its current name in 2016 following its conversion into an academy. The school is currently managed by the David Nieper Education Trust, an academy trust responsible for the running of David Nieper Academy. With around 700 pupils aged 11-18, David Nieper Academy is larger than the average secondary school that covers an economically diverse catchment area, a fact reflected in the school’s student intake.

Values and Vision
David Nieper Academy has undergone a significant amount of change and re-organisation since becoming an academy in mid-2016. As such, the school is working hard in order to manage the transition to an academy, and keeps the needs of each individual student paramount. The school is committed to providing a range of opportunities for pupils from all backgrounds, and is currently in the process of developing a brand-new teaching block and sports facilities, including football, netball and cricket pitches, with plans existing for further development to be decided in the near future.
As a newly re-opened academy, David Nieper Academy has yet to receive a formal Ofsted inspection.
