Welcome to
Kirk Hallam Community Academy

Kirk Hallam Community Academy is a medium-sized 11–18 academy, situated in the Erewash area of Derbyshire. Its students are drawn from both rural and urban areas. The academy admits students into Year 7 from 15 local primary schools.

“We are unashamedly ambitious for all our pupils and believe that the development of the whole child is critical for their future success. A pupil’s strength of character goes hand in hand with academic achievement and we believe that learning should be a transformational experience for every child. Our carefully planned curriculum, enrichment programme and high-quality pastoral care provide a wealth of opportunities for all pupils to reach their potential.

Just like the pupils we serve, Kirk Hallam Community Academy is on a journey to be the very best school it can be. This is a continuous process, and our child centred approach and unwavering pursuit of excellence constantly drives us forward.

Thank you for taking the time visit our website, and we would be delighted to meet you and discuss our fantastic school in person.”

Our parents say...

We believe that schools should belong to their communities.

Kirk Hallam has a long and proud tradition as an important part of its community. We will all be working hard to ensure that all stakeholders have every reason to be proud of their local school.

The academy is also the Hub school for the Erewash School Sports Partnership, which consists of 47 schools and colleges. The SSP has increased participation in high quality PE from 68% to 85%, achieved over 600 individual sporting qualifications, paid for £65,000 of playground markings and brought in a further £147,000 of funding for community projects.

It has also created a Young Leaders Academy of 80 students and provided coaching from 18 different professional development courses.
