Welcome to Four Dwellings Academy!
Our academy is a small, welcoming and well resourced establishment allowing pupils to benefit from a supportive, safe environment with a personalised approach to learning.

Since converting to academy in March 2013 standards have continued to rise with Ofsted stating that the Principal has ‘…established an academy with a vision of high expectations’. Attendance here at Four Dwellings is above national average demonstrating that pupils enjoy coming to school.

Pupils study a broad range of subjects at both Key Stage 3 and 4 providing the perfect balance of academic challenge and creative development, and they are stretched to achieve their very best in all of our lively and engaging lessons. We form strong relationships between home and school through our skilled pastoral staff, and value the support from our families and local community in our drive for continual improvement.

Pupils tell us that they are proud to be part of Four Dwellings Academy. They benefit from accessing a wide range of extra curricular provision, supported by excellent facilities in sport, music, drama, technology and IT.

Our priority is to develop well rounded, confident individuals who have the skills necessary to succeed well beyond school. In addition to our dedicated teaching and support staff, our Independent Careers Advisor provides an outstanding level of individualised support to ensure pupils have the most opportunities post-16.

An academy with a positive ethos and high standards, Four Dwellings is a place where every child really matters!

Visitors welcome – come and see our academy at work. Contact Jade Burton (PA to the Principal) to arrange a visit.
