James Brindley Academy


At James Brindley Academy, our vision is to 'Think Differently' to inspire young people to overcome all barriers and achieve their dreams

Welcome to James Brindley Academy

We work across 11 sites: Dovedale, Northfield and Parkway Teaching Centres and Hospitals Centres, including home teaching.

Many of our young people make exceptional progress in the face of significant personal challenges with physical or mental health.  It is our primary role as educators to prioritise their academic studies but equally we recognise the importance of supporting their well-being and preparing them for their next steps.

In each of our Centres we put young people first in all our decision making.  Staff morals, training and development are also key drivers for us.  Our aim is to create an ethos of resilience, inclusivity and high expectations for both staff and pupils.
