We are an 11–18 Academy set in extensive, attractive grounds and playing fields. We enjoy state-of-the-art facilities in a recently built and well equipped building.


Our aim is to encourage our students to develop into mature and confident young people willing and able to play an active part in Academy life, participating in different learning experiences. Our students are valued and supported and given opportunities for personal development through a wide range of subjects and extra-curricular activities. We believe that everybody can achieve and experience success throughout the seven years at Mexborough Academy. We have very talented teaching and support staff, who are friendly, welcoming and helpful. There is a genuine concern to provide high quality education alongside support for our students. We are a fully inclusive Academy preparing students with the skills to learn throughout their lives.


The Academy seeks to ensure that students’ attain the highest possible standards in Literacy and Numeracy through quality learning experiences in the full range of National Curriculum subjects, within a supportive and challenging environment. The Academy is proud of its exciting and stimulating wider curriculum.


We celebrate our diversity and value everyone equally, working tirelessly to allow children to flourish whatever their ability or talent. All students are unique and have a valuable contribution to make towards our Academy. We regard the potential success of each individual student’s education as being the shared responsibility of themselves, their parents/carers and their teachers. Through a commitment to this sense of collective responsibility we will create an environment that promotes life-long learning and the vision that education is an ongoing process that stays with students throughout their lives.


We insist on the highest standards of behaviour and expect that students will do their best at all times.
All students should leave the Academy at the end of the day happy and eager to share with you some of their experiences.


We are ambitious about the future of Mexborough Academy. With the support of Wakefield City Academies Trust we have already begun our journey to improving the Academy to good and beyond.
