Our Story

Welcome to Quarry Hill Academy.

We hope that our website gives you an insight into Quarry Hill Academy, and keeps you up to date with all of our news and events.

Our school started as separate Junior and Infant schools, which then amalgamated in January 2011. In July 2013 we became an Academy, and are sponsored by Catalyst Academies Trust. Our school has grown in size over the years and we now have classes in Nursery to Year 6, with over 500 pupils in total.

At Quarry Hill Academy we aim to provide the best environment for our pupils to learn, to persevere and to succeed. Our school is based in a multi-cultural community, bringing a valuable mix of customs and cultures, which is essential to the development of our pupils. We value all of our pupils and ensure that we reflect their individuality, knowledge and skills. We want our children to be happy, confident and to share a passion for learning. We help them to achieve highly and make outstanding progress.

Attainment and progress for our pupils is in the top 10% nationally and in July 2016, Ofsted inspected Quarry Hill Academy and we were awarded a judgement of Outstanding, making rapid progress from the previous finding of Requires Improvement.  

Our bespoke curriculum is carefully planned to enable us to teach all the National Curriculum subjects in a creative and inspiring way. We engage children in a range of activities that enable them to develop their knowledge and skills, and equip them for life beyond school.

We believe that every child is able to succeed.

We aim high, fly high!’
