On the 1st July 2019  we became Tupton Primary and Nursery Academy, a member of the Redhill Academy Trust and the first Derbyshire primary school to join the trust.

The Redhill Academy Trust has four principles that guide everything our academies aim to achieve:

  • High expectations of all pupils
  • Valuing and celebrating academic achievement
  • Outstanding teaching for all pupils
  • Widening pupils’ experiences through a range of extra-curricular activities including sports and the performing arts

The school was originally founded in 1875 and the Victorian buildings still make up most of our school. There have been additions over the years, including a purpose built Nursery and we have extensive grounds with a large playground, field and wildlife area.

The Academy has achieved the Sapere Bronze Philosophy for Children Bronze Award
