Welcome to Furness Academy

Furness Academy is situated in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria on the edge of the Lake District.  The Academy is located in state of the art buildings on Park Drive.

Furness Academy is one of the few academies in the country that boasts only educational sponsors, and everything we do is about driving up educational standards and ensuring that students aim for their personal best.

The Academy is an institution which has at its heart a sense of ambition and determination to deliver outstanding teaching and learning.
