Opening September 2019…

The Mease Spencer Academy is a brand new school which will be part of the Spencer Academies Trust, opening in September 2019.

The school is part of Derbyshire County Council’s development plan for education in South Derbyshire.  It will cater primarily for the educational needs of the children from the new homes being built in South Derbyshire, particularly Hilton Valley and will strive to be central to community development.

We are very pleased to have the opportunity to open a brand new school and have already appointed the Principal, Julia Hart who is working behind the scenes with Angela O’Brien, our Primary Education Director.  They are preparing policies, developing the curriculum and planning to ensure that the school is working towards an outstanding OFSTED judgement from the very beginning.

The academy will be a part of the Spencer Academies Trust which includes an outstanding academy (Wyndham Primary) within the Trust and also leads on educational development through research across Derby, Derbyshire and beyond. It will also work in collaboration with Hilton Primary, a long established successful school in the same village, which is also a Spencer Academies Trust school.
