It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Kirkby College. It is my privilege to lead the academy in raising achievement, improving the quality of teaching, and continuing to improve outcomes for all students.

Over the last two years, Kirkby College has undergone a transformation becoming a vibrant, positive, supportive environment where students work with their peers and staff to develop the knowledge and skills and attributes to become successful members of the academy community.

Our values of ‘Achievement, Resilience and Community’ are evident throughout the academy and are integral to our students’ success and wellbeing.

Our climate for learning is safe, secure and orderly – we have a key focus on recognition and celebration of excellence in its many guises, raising aspirations and acknowledging student and staff success.

We look forward to welcoming you to Kirkby College.

Mr Mark Golden
