Welcome to Derby Moor Spencer Academy

Derby Moor is a vibrant and exciting place to work and to learn as both a student and a member of staff. Our school motto of ‘Together We Succeed’ captures our approach to life and learning at the academy and also reflects the diversity and aspiration of our school community. Our motto is underpinned by our four core values:

Achievement – we believe that every student, regardless of background, need or personal circumstance can achieve.

Aspiration – we believe that strong achievement is grounded in the best teaching and learning experience which ensures that all students will aspire to be the best they can be.  Our careers and employability programme ensure our students develop the necessary skills and attributes to become highly employable young people. For our staff, we have an excellent professional development programme that is driven by the latest research. Our career progression profiles ensure that all staff are invested in and empowered to become the best practitioners they can be.

High Expectations – we have high expectations of students, both in terms of achievement and conduct.

Community – we embrace diversity and create a sense of belonging so that all members of the school community have a voice, feel valued and are kept safe.

Derby Moor is part of The Spencer Academies Trust, a multi-academy trust with schools across the East Midlands, and with a strategic focus on Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. A high performing regional MAT with a national reputation for excellence, Spencer Academies Trust schools include primary, secondary and sixth form provision.
