Welcome to Dilkes Academy.
We hope the information and photographs will give you a flavour of life at Dilkes and keep you up to date with all the recent news and events that take place at our school.
Our pupils are aged 3 – 11, ranging from Nursery to Year 6, and mainly live in the area surrounding the school. We also have a Personalised Learning Centre that offers specialist provision for 10 pupils. This means we have over 450 pupils in total.
At Dilkes we want our children to be happy, confident and to share a passion for learning. We help them to achieve highly and make outstanding progress.
We value every child and ensure that we foster the individuality of their interests and experiences. Our bespoke curriculum is carefully planned to enable us to teach all the National Curriculum subjects in a creative and inspiring way. We engage children in a range of activities that enable them to develop their knowledge and skills, and equip them for life beyond school.
We are very proud of the achievements of our pupils, and this pride is echoed by the pupils themselves. We strive to continue to build on the outstanding provision that Dilkes Academy offers.
"We strive to ensure high achievement and a happy educational experience for every child."
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
Mr R Latham, Headteacher
