About Us

 

Denaby Main Academy is located in Denaby Main within Doncaster in the county of South Yorkshire, close to Barnsley and Rotherham. We currently have 7 classes of children across the school with children aged between 3 and 11 years. For more information about our school please click on the prospectus link at the end of this page.

We are delighted to be a part of the Astrea Academy Trust. The Astrea Academy Trust has the highest expectations of pupil attainment in national assessments, but our aspirations take us beyond the concept of “schooling.” We believe in “Inspiring Beyond Measure. ”Astrea academies are committed to ‘educate, not just school’, promoting the development of scholarship, curiosity, tenacity, aspiration, and empathy.

You will see this at Denaby Main Academy within our school charters which have been written by each class.

The Astrea Academy Trust logo also communicates the importance we place on collaboration, development and aspiration: The three figures coming together in the shape of a tree, which represents growth, whilst the tallest figure reaches upwards, towards a star, which is above and beyond the highest branch of the tree.

 

This is a hugely exciting time for our family of schools. Astrea has been recognised by the Department for Education as being well placed to raise standards and achieve excellence for pupils in a growing number of schools nationwide. We are presented with a rare opportunity to make a real difference to the lives and life chances of school children – many of whom haven’t previously received the educational opportunities they deserve.

To tackle this inequality, a Northern Sponsor fund, amounting to £10 million, was created in order to attract and encourage the best sponsors to take on schools in the north of England. Astrea Academy Trust is one of the first to receive a share of this fund and has been trusted with setting up high-performing academy hubs in areas with some of the greatest need.

The Astrea vision enables individual academies to flourish with real autonomy, whilst also ensuring a strong ethos of support and collaboration across our schools. This balance is necessary in order to achieve long term sustainability for our schools.

“Reach for the top of the tree and you may get to the first branch but reach for the stars and you’ll get to the top of the tree.”
