Welcome to Horbury Academy
Welcome to Horbury Academy’s website. Now let me tell you a little bit about us before you navigate our pages…
- Horbury Academy is a mixed, 11-16 academy, situated on the outskirts of Wakefield. We were judged as Good by Ofsted in January 2016 and became part of the Accord Multi-Academy Trust later that same year, along with Ossett Academy, Accord Sixth Form College, Middlestown Primary Academy and Horbury Primary Academy.
We are immensely proud of our academy, staff and students and strongly believe that all students are entitled to experience the full breadth of education; reflected through our curriculum model that encourages learners to study a broad range of subjects. From securing academic success to securing success in extra-curricular activity, our staff are fully committed to ensuring that all students make the most of their time at Horbury Academy.
Alongside our extensive curricular and extra-curricular offer, we provide excellent pastoral care for our students; tailored to their individual needs. We work in partnership with parents and carers to ensure that our students feel fully supported during their time at the academy, allowing them to achieve their very best.
Visitors frequently comment on our calm, supportive and friendly atmosphere. I hope our website allows you to glimpse a part of this.
"We want all our students to reach for the stars."

This Steam Day challenge was to 'design a harness for our eggs to escape from a group of foxes attacking the school'!😳 All harnesses were very impressive with this one being particularly speedy, thus effective should predators actually have been lurking in the academy grounds! https://t.co/auw2JN4PmB

Does your child have the SharePoint app on their personal device (mobile phone or tablet)? Downloading this app will enable them to keep up with the latest information and updates from the Academy and it's available to download at no cost from Google Play and the App Store. https://t.co/2ONwcfVvW5

We celebrated some fabulous work yesterday, with each pupil receiving a certificate! Pupils simply need to take their work to the WOW Wednesday table in the Atrium where they can proudly chat about it to a member of SLT! #WOWWednesday 👏@accordmat https://t.co/nv0CniuPEW

7 eggs due to hatch on 5th May arrived today & we'll make sure you can follow them on their journey & hopefully learn something along the way! Next week, Miss Major will be candling them to see if all are viable to hatch. She'll also be about at lunch with different challenges! https://t.co/J9uLY8wIYm

Congratulations to our World Book Day Competition winners, Kiera & Grace! The Year 7 students successfully guessed which member of staff was behind the book & created a confectionary delight showcasing their favourite novel! Well done! Enjoy your goodie-filled hamper! 😋 https://t.co/aVT6oepNYO

Remember we told you that the Easter bunny left Miss Major in charge of the Easter eggs for STEAM month and she's forgotten the code to the safe?? Well here's the first clue.... Take a look and see if you can help Miss Major to crack the code and save Easter STEAM month!👇👀 https://t.co/QpC8WsM0S9
