Students

Whether you want to be designing supercars, inventing the next Snapchat, saving lives through pioneering surgery, being a successful entrepreneur or something else entirely, the David Nieper Academy will help you to experience a world of opportunity.

We’re different to other schools as we are supported by successful, local employers including David Nieper Limited, Owen Taylor and Sons Ltd, Thorntons, Bowmer & Kirkland and Denby Pottery. Their involvement means our lessons will give you both a good education and the skills you need when you move on to further education and into the world of work.

We want you to aim high. We expect you to work hard. We want you to reach your potential!

We are currently upgrading the Academy’s site but you will soon enjoy some of the best facilities in the area. Our new main teaching block (opening January 2017) will give you inspiring places to learn. We run many co-curriculum activities so you can also enjoy sport, drama and more. We have a three-court sports hall, drama studio, theatre and our large outside space (to be completed September 2017) has dedicated pitches for football, netball, hockey and cricket as well as an athletics track.
