Welcome from Principal Linda Halbert

I am delighted to have this opportunity to share with you the opportunities for students in Freebrough Academy, in the heart of East Cleveland.bubble sweep

The Academy opened in September 2010 and we at Freebrough relish the opportunity to provide the highest quality education in partnership with our sponsors. We want our students to be excited by learning and have the highest aspirations for themselves and their community.

Our specialism of Business and Enterprise is a real driver for our values, ethos and curriculum. We want to create a vibrant learning community in which young people are inspired and motivated to achieve excellence, whilst immersed in a positive, “can do” culture.

As an Academy we are passionate about raising standards of attainment for our students through an innovative curriculum, quality first teaching and learning and a swift and easy response to the needs of learners to ensure that support enables them to reach their full potential.

Our website will only give you a flavour of our Academy. I hope you will visit us and find out more.
