Message from the Principal

Welcome from the Principal

I am delighted that you are showing an interest in Chapeltown Academy, and I hope our website helps you to understand the many opportunities available here. I am extremely proud to be the newly appointed Principal at what is an exciting time for both Chapeltown Academy and our wider Trust.

We are very much part of a Trust family, working in support of each other to provide the best educational experience for the young people of Sheffield and surrounding areas. Chapeltown Academy is a happy and successful post-16 provider and we put the students at the heart of what we do.

We are committed to developing teaching and learning to ensure that we provide a first-class experience for all our students. Our students make new friends, mature in a positive environment and have the opportunity to engage in a wide range of enrichment activities, designed to develop their social skills.

I am passionate about improving the life chances for our young people so that they have more keys to more doors in the future. However, appreciating that grades are only one piece of the jigsaw for a well-rounded education. We will never compromise on standards and have high expectations – part of our values is represented by compassion and academic rigour – we will challenge our students to be the best version of themselves, whilst walking alongside them to help achieve their goals.

I look forward to working with all stakeholders in the future and developing strong ties within the local community as we support students who are confident, articulate and achieve their potential.

Dominic Pinto
