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.
According to an African proverb, ‘it takes a whole village to raise a child’. Similarly, it takes a whole school to educate a child with everyone in the school community playing a vital role. Educating a child is a collective endeavour, we stand and fall as a team, we celebrate each other’s success and we take collective responsibility and support each other when we fail. So, it doesn’t matter what your specific role is at Shirebrook Academy, your chief responsibility is to make sure that every student has the best possible experience of school and is able to be the best that they can be.
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.
