Dogsthorpe Academy

About us

Welcome to the Dogsthorpe Academy



I am privileged to be the Principal of the Dogsthorpe Academy and would like to welcome you to our school and website.

The Dogsthorpe Junior Academy serves a diverse community. Our pupils are safe and happy and they get on well with each other. We inspire our children through our well -developed programme of learning opportunities which includes personal and social skills to support the children in their next steps.

Our staff are a hard working team who provide engaging learning opportunities and experiences. We encourage our pupils to be independent so that they have confidence and positive attitudes when they leave us to go on to Secondary Education.

We work closely with parents and carers. We value the support that parents and carers  provide; we see them as partners in a child’s education. Parents and carers are encouraged to contact the Academy if there are any concerns.

We believe in listening to our pupils and there are many ways that pupils can be involved and contribute to Academy life. We have an Academy Council, Head boy and girl, a range of ambassadors, Sports leaders and House captains. There are also a range of extra-curricular activities where children can  take part in clubs at lunchtime or after school.

We are fortunate to be part of the Greenwood Academy Trust who provide us with support and collaboration.

Please contact the Academy if you have any questions or would like to visit.
