Welcome to Furness Academy
At Furness Academy, we believe that what matters most is people. We understand that building positive, respectful relationships between everyone in our school is really important in making Furness Academy a truly exciting place in which to learn. We believe that it is our students and staff coming together to work and learn that makes our school such a special place to be.
Mr Simon Laheney
Every school in Cumbria was invited again to participate in the annual Wordsworth Poetry Award; this year’s theme: A Walk on the Wild Side. Over 100 pupils from Furness Academy entered, as did many hundreds more from across the county. 16 pupils from Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 were randomly chosen to attend the event, that was held at Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage in Rydal, near Ambleside.
We will be holding our second Comedy Trust Training Course in Autumn to raise money for our Student Inspiration Fund.
Following on from the success of our current Erasmus + EU funded projects ScienceGirls and ELIOT, the Academy has submitted four more bids to the European Commissions Erasmus programmeView More News
