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.

On Friday 16th June, Furness Academy held their Inaugural Sports Awards evening. This first event of its kind saw students from across all years groups recognised for the sporting excellence and achievements.
A massive congratulations to the Year 9 Go4Set teams who have been working on a healthy schools project with GlaxoSmithKline over the last 12 weeks. They attended the celebration day yesterday and they had to present their projects to the directors of GSK. The boys team won the people's choice award. Well done to everyone involved :)

Over 100 pupils from Furness Academy entered, as did many hundreds more from across the county. 16 pupils from Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 were randomly chosen to attend the event, that was held at Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage in Rydal, near Ambleside.View More News
