Welcome to David Nieper Academy

Starting secondary school is an exciting time and at the David Nieper Academy, we want you to enjoy your time with us.

Before starting, all pupils who have been offered a place will be invited to one of our transition days. These are fixed days, in the summer term (when you are in Year 6), to help you be prepared for the start of your first term with us. You will come to the Academy, meet your tutor and classmates and be given all the information you need to know.

A copy of the documents below will be delivered to your school or sent home directly to you. Please have a read through – they provide lots of helpful information. 

  1. Letter
  2. Pupil information booklet
  3. Uniform dress code and expectations
  4. Uniform order sheet from Schoolwear
  5. Confidential Information form
  6. Student ICT Acceptable Use Policy
