Welcome to The Laurel Academy! Serving the town of Mexborough and it’s surrounding areas, our academy is an 11- 16 school which is sponsored by the Delta Academies Trust (DELTA).

Choosing the right secondary school for your child can be one of the most difficult decisions you make. I hope our website gives you a flavour of what we offer, and that you will be eager to visit our Academy to find out more and to ask any questions you may have.

We believe that every child has a right to an outstanding education and we are determined to make that the case in our academy. Here at The Laurel Academy, the entire school community is committed to providing an outstanding educational experience, allowing all students to achieve their potential. We deliver exciting and engaging lessons within a disciplined and supportive environment.

We offer a flexible curriculum and an extensive range of activities beyond the classroom. In 2018, The Laurel Academy became part of the Delta family. Since then, we’ve been growing rapidly, and our fantastic building and resources ensure that your child receives the very best education. We look forward to sharing more of the academy’s successes when you visit!

Providing Inspirational Opportunities

Our students receive the very best education in an inspiring and engaging environment. Outside of the classroom, we offer a multitude of opportunities to further our students’ understanding and grounding. From trips to visiting speakers, interactive sessions with industry professionals to sports days, we try our absolute best to provide as many inspiring opportunities on-top of our usual lessons as possible.

Collaborating With Our Community

We work closely with our school community to continue to develop as an inspirational education provider. We pride ourselves on sharing our students’ successes far and wide utilising our social media channels, website and extensive DELTA network.
