Welcome to The Discovery Academy

Welcome to The Discovery Academy where our aim is to ‘Discover Tomorrow Together’.  As we begin our second year in our fantastic state-of-the-art building, we are looking forward to another successful year.  For the first time, demand for places in Year 7 exceeded the number available and the 240 students who joined us in September have settled in really well.

Everyone who visits the Academy comments not only on the amazing facilities, but also on the high standards of behaviour shown by our students.  With a focus on ‘Pride and Respect’, and a strong pastoral structure in place, our students tell us that they feel safe and well cared for and are well supported in every area of their learning.

John Patino - Executive Head

Attendance at our recent Open Evening indicated that Year 7 is likely to be over-subscribed again next September and The Discovery Academy will remain the biggest and best in the city.

If you are considering sending your son or daughter to The Discovery Academy or wish to view our facilities please contact us on 01782 882100.


Gardening Club – Every Tuesday & Thursday 3.00pm till 4.00pm

Sessions are focused on general horticultural tasks; growing and looking after the plants. Sessions also include some team and communication games.
