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

David Nieper Academy is different to other schools as we are supported by successful, local employers including David Nieper Ltd, Owen Taylor & Sons Ltd, Bowmer & Kirkland, Denby Pottery and Places for People. 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.

Aspire. Endeavour. Succeed

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


Our new main teaching block (which opened in February 2017) will give you inspiring places to learn. David Nieper Academy is well equipped with a three-court sports hall, drama studio, theatre and our large outside areas have dedicated pitches for football, netball, hockey and cricket. We run many co-curricular activities so whether you enjoy drama, music or sports, you can make use of our excellent facilities here at the academy.
