At the David Nieper Academy in Alfreton, we believe that all our students, aged 11-18, deserve an education that helps them to reach their full potential. Our aim is that every student will confidently take their next step with key lifelong skills and an understanding of how school learning is applied in real life. As the first school in Derbyshire to be sponsored by a local company, David Nieper Ltd and other employer partners are involved in the Academy. Each is committed to developing the skills of local people and help us to embed genuine business examples into our lessons as well as inspiring students to look beyond the Academy gates to the further education, university and career opportunities beyond. The Academy is also investing in the local area’s future. Our new £13m building is due to open in mid-February 2017 and will provide purpose-built facilities to help students practice applying their curriculum lessons into real-world situations. To discover more about the David Nieper Academy, request a prospectus or call us on 01773 832331 to arrange a visit. We look forward to welcoming you.
