Welcome to Pennine Way Junior Academy


The transition between ‘infants’ and ‘secondary school’ represents a crucial stage in a child’s educational life.


Independence, self-assurance and confidence need to be developed in order to prepare pupils for post-11 education and life in the 21st century, however, schools must also ensure that children enjoy the innocence of youth and of childhood which should be the best time of their lives.

Pennine Way prides itself on providing all of the above and invites you and your children to come and see what we have to offer. Set in superb grounds overlooking South Derbyshire and East Staffordshire, our school boasts high academic success with the vast majority of our children achieving excellent results in their end of key stage assessments.

In addition, our sporting profile is second to none in South Derbyshire, with representative teams in a number of sports including, football, netball, hockey, rugby, rounders and cricket, participating in fixtures and competitions across the county.

Our musical achievements are also outstanding with our school band and choir performing regularly and providing a musical backbone to the school of the highest note. Add to the above, national awards in ‘Art’, ‘Music’ and ‘ICT’ show the value we place on developing rounded individuals, children who wish to participate in life beyond the classroom. This, we believe, will stand them in good stead for life beyond Pennine Way.

I look forward to welcoming you to our school in the near future.


Mr R. J. Mansfield - Headteacher
