About Us

Furness Academy is a secondary school at the heart of the community in Barrow-in-Furness. In September 2013 we opened our new £22 million building. This is a fantastic environment for students to learn in, offering them state of the art equipment and facilities to enhance their education.

At Furness Academy, learning is at the heart of what we do. You can look forward with confidence to Furness Academy providing a welcoming and safe environment for your child. Our core values of respect, responsibility and relationships underpin all our efforts to ensure that all students have the greatest opportunity to achieve their best. We want our students to leave Furness Academy as confident learners with the skills, knowledge and qualifications that they need to succeed in the 21st century and contribute to their community and be active global citizens.

Furness Academy also has the privilege of being located just 20 minutes south of the Lake District. Our town and local area is surrounded by beautiful scenery from high mountains to sandy beaches.
