"Welcome to the Djanogly City Academy website. I hope that as you explore the site, you will get a flavour of the unique culture that exists within our school.

Our aim is very simple and that is to be recognised as outstanding in every aspect.

The determination of staff and governors to achieve this goal is very strong and is based on a simple but direct strategy - Achievement: No Excuses."

Serving Our Community

At Djanogly City Academy, we recognise that the best schools work in partnership with their local community. A key element of that partnership is listening to ideas to help us to make Djanogly City Academy a school we can all be proud of.

We would like a better understanding of the workings of the Academy and our child's education

Provided parents the opportunity to visit the Academy whilst in session to see a working learning environment

We would like a more consistent and fair approach to dealing with student issues

Held student assemblies explaining and raising the level of expectation. This was supported with a letter home

We would like to have clearer communication from the Academy

Added functions to our website so that it can be accessed in many different languages

We want to have a say in changes at the Academy

Set up a student council so students have a voice in changes

We would like the lunch queue to be shorter

We have re-modelled the school day to include a split lunch

We would like more opportunity to access 1-2-1 teaching and tutoring

We have increased the opportunities available and now have 40% of our year 11 students receiving 1-2-1 tutoring in extra curricular time

We would like more to do at break and lunch times

We have provided outdoor table tennis facilities around the academy, allow the use of the astro and courts area for games and offer subject and library clubs during these periods

Our primary feeder school were keen to know more about how we work with our students once they arrive with us and want to engage more in liaison work

We have welcomed primary staff in to the academy during the day to look around and visit classes. We are offering weekly food technology sessions to our feeder primaries


Work Hard, Be Kind

Achievement: No Excuses

At Djanogly City Academy we value traditional qualities; hard work, honesty, good manners and consideration for others.

Through applying these values fairly and consistently we shape and mould our students into confident, mature and independent young people.
