Welcome to Furness Academy
At Furness Academy, we believe that what matters most is people. We understand that building positive, respectful relationships between everyone in our school is really important in making Furness Academy a truly exciting place in which to learn. We believe that it is our students and staff coming together to work and learn that makes our school such a special place to be.
Mr Simon Laheney
Year 7 have been studying Shakespeare’s England this term in their English lessons and have discovered all sorts of interesting things about the time in which our greatest playwright and poet lived.
A huge congratulations to every single one of the over 60 students who were involved in making our Mulan show such a huge success. The students on stage, those backstage and all those who worked on the lighting, the sound, the dances and the costumes, you did an amazing job. Many thanks also to all those who took the time to come and watch our show, we hope you enjoyed it
We are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting the first, and hopefully annual, Academy Calling Festival this summer at Furness Academy. This is a whole community event where we can gather children and families from across the community to celebrate their talents and successes. The festival is due to take place on Saturday the 14th July 2018, with doors opening at 11.30am.
