"This year has been an incredibly successful one. We have achieved the best results the Academy has ever achieved and turned an RI OFSTED report into a GOOD within just 15 months. We have also recruited the most students we have ever had and secured our place as a top Post 16 provider in the city of Sheffield. OFSTED said ‘Students work very well together in a harmonious and close-knit learning community. They are confident and approach their learning with enthusiasm and commitment so that they can achieve their best.’ We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved and very much look forward to meeting new prospective students on our open days who are interested in joining our successful and aspirational community.”
4 of our current students attended a debating competition at Manchester University on Saturday 3rd Feb 2018. The students performed admirably debating about same sex schools, the advantages of financial over material aid, whether the media should have the right to publish the names of the dead in tragedies, whether the quality of, or length of life was more important.
"Attending a Russell Group University, getting to study what I love, and ultimately being one step closer to achieving my dreams was something that during my GCSE years seemed unattainable, and I never could have imagined that I would be here today. Coming to Chapeltown Academy changed that, it really gave me hope that there was a future for me, and a chance to really get somewhere, and although there were a few wobbles in that faith, it was something that ultimately inspired me to carry on."
