Welcome to Furness Academy
When you make your first visit to Furness Academy you immediately get the sense that it is more than just a school. The state-of-the-art learning and sporting facilities, along with the purposeful and happy atmosphere within, really are hard to miss. We believe that what matters most is the people that choose to learn and work here. Our values underpin the qualities in the thousands of small interactions that happen every day between the staff and the students and through which we aim to inspire your children to be the best that they can be.
As headteacher, I am really proud and lucky to be able to work in such an inspirational school; as a father I understand the great trust you place in us to care for, educate and inspire your children. I am confident that if you choose Furness Academy as your child’s school you will, in the fullness of time, be impressed with us and pleased with your decision. We take our responsibility seriously and are always prepared to go that extra mile if it is needed.
Our website will give you an insight into what life is like at Furness Academy, but to gain a fuller sense and enjoy the purposeful atmosphere here we hope you will visit us and take a tour around with some of our students. Please contact us at any time of the year for a tour and we look forward to meeting you.
