Stanground Academy

About Us

The Stanground Academy opened its doors on 01 April 2012.

The Academy provides education for 1800 pupils aged 11 to 19. Currently, we have around 1500 11-16 and 300 in Sixth Form.

The Stanground Academy opened in the existing grounds of the former Stanground College.  A major capital building programme costing £24m was completed in September 2013 and now provides state-of-the-art buildings and facilities for students and staff. These fantastic buildings provide high-quality academic, vocational and sports facilities.

The Stanground Academy serves the local community with students living closest to the buildings having priority for places.

Offering a full comprehensive curriculum, including academic GCSEs and A-levels plus vocational courses at Level 2 and Level 3, the Academy is designed for students of all abilities. A high level of examination success is expected of all.
