Welcome to The Dorcan Academy

I am very privileged to be able to lead this exceptionally caring academy which has a very special ethos and a unique team spirit. Our staff are prepared to ‘go the extra mile’ for our enthusiastic students and we are well supported by parents and highly committed governors.

Our vision is to be an outstanding school of first choice at the heart of our local community and we encourage all our students and staff to "Aspire to Greatness".  We are an "academy of opportunity" offering students a wide and varied curriculum of academic and vocational subjects alongside an extensive extra-curricular programme, including the highly acclaimed Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.

At The Dorcan Academy who you become is as important as what you achieve. Our aim is for students to stand out as model citizens in their community, aspiring to be the very best they can be. We believe that everyone is intelligent and able to be successful by working hard, persevering and adopting a ‘Growth Mindset’. We hope you enjoy visiting our website and invite you to come and see our school in action.

Sherryl Bareham, Head Teacher
