About Top Valley Academy

At Top Valley Academy every child is known, valued and encouraged to give their best.  We aim to give all our pupils everything they need to reach their potential and achieve at the highest possible level.  We place great importance on the academic achievements of our pupils, but our Academy is much more than that.  We support the progress of all pupils whatever their ability through SEN support, targeted intervention and gifted and talented programmes.

We have worked tirelessly to recruit quality staff to Top Valley Academy. We only recruit good or outstanding teachers to the Academy because it is only through high quality teaching that we will achieve the best possible outcomes for our pupils.  Out teachers work alongside high quality support staff, recognised by Ofsted who describe that "the safety of students is good" and "care and support for them are strong".

With the support of our sponsor, Central College Nottingham, we are bringing new opportunities and aspirations to the pupils and families in the school and the wider community by providing high quality academic and vocational curriculum pathways, allowing all pupils to achieve at the highest possible level and to progress to qualifications that are challenging and right for them.

We have a highly developed and effective transition programme with our key partner feeder schools and also work very closely with many of the 20 + schools that send children to the Academy.  There is nothing more important than ensuring that transition from primary to secondary is a happy and successful experience.
