Principal's Welcome

A warm welcome to Yewlands Academy. We are an 11-16 Academy with 900 students situated in the north of Sheffield, that provides a broad, rich, and ambitious curriculum offer for all students that extends beyond the classroom.

We have high ambitions for, and expectations of, all our students and encourage them to ‘be the best version of themselves’ in everything that they do. Here at Yewlands Academy we expect all students to be 5* Learners and demonstrate the Academy’s Values:

• Ambition
- We believe there is no limit to what we can achieve; we dream big
- We have high expectations for ourselves and others; we strive for the extraordinary
- We aim to be better tomorrow than we are today

• Determination
- We work hard to overcome challenges; we know this helps us grow
- We are resilient in the face of adversity; we never give up
- We learn from our mistakes and move forward: we positively recover

• Respect
- We treat others how we would like to be treated, showing kindness and good manners
- We listen to each other and respect differences; we are all in this together
- We take care of and have pride in our environment

• Responsibility
- We are fully prepared for learning and work hard to be the best versions of ourselves
- We take ownership of our actions and put things right if they go wrong
- We have the courage to be excellent role models, inside and outside our Academy

Our Academy is a caring, nurturing and focussed community with an atmosphere of calm and purposeful learning. This ensures that all our students feel safe, happy and secure, achieve excellent academic progress and can be the best that they can be. Your child will be taught by teachers who are highly qualified and have high expectations. This ensures that our students have the opportunity to achieve the levels of excellence that we want for them.

We recognise the different needs of students, value their unique contributions to our learning community and work hard with them to develop their talents and potential. Everyone matters at Yewlands Academy.

Our impressive modern building creates an inclusive environment which inspires high quality teaching and learning. The Academy’s building is complemented by state-of-the-art technology and resources including our design and technology department and ICT facilities, as well as a modern dance studio, drama studio and sports hall. A wide range of extracurricular and ‘Yew Futures’ activities ensure that all students have sporting, artistic, musical and cultural opportunities that nurture, develop and stretch their interests.

Yewlands Academy is proud to be a member of the Brigantia Learning Trust. Brigantia is a Sheffield based, cross-phase multi-academy trust, currently consisting of six schools including Longley Park 6th Form College. Since joining Brigantia Learning Trust in April 2018 the Academy has gone from strength to strength with examination results demonstrating the most improvement in Sheffield. We work closely with our family of schools and educational partners to ensure that transition from Year 6 to Yewlands Academy and then on to post-16 education is smooth.

Yewlands is a wonderful Academy that serves a fantastic community. We enjoy the commitment and support of our parents and carers and thank them for ensuring their child is in school on time, in full school uniform and with good intentions every day. Your child’s education is of upmost importance to us and everything that we do is geared towards providing the very best for the students that we serve; only the best is good enough.

Please take a moment to look at our website, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube which provide you with all the latest information and news about life at Yewlands. If you require any further details, please do not hesitate to contact us; we will be pleased to meet you and show you around our brilliant Academy.
