About Shirebrook Academy
Shirebrook Academy opened its doors to students in September 2010. The Academy is a forward thinking innovative organisation at the heart of the community. We moved into purpose built, state of the art buildings in April 2013. In May 2017 we joined ACET (Aston Community Education Trust), a growing and successful Multi Academy Trust, which will enable us to continue our development with the support of a larger organisation.
Shirebrook Academy is at the heart of the Shirebrook community; working to raise aspirations and to improve the future prosperity and regeneration of the local area. The Ofsted report of March 2013 said: “The widely held belief for an inclusive school that raises aspirations in the area and reaches out to the community it serves is a reality here”. We are very proud of our community links and our standing in the community.
Professional Learning and developing staff to be future leaders is a key element of our work and fundamental to our success. Governors are committed to developing the leaders of the future and we are proud of the high number of staff who have gained promotion internally and externally.
