Our Values

In any organisation – be it a school, a company, or even a family – strong and clearly expressed values create identity, focus, unity and drive, answering the questions: What do we belong to?  What is important to us? What holds us together? Why do our collective efforts matter? At Droylsden Academy, our core values help us to make decisions from day-to-day that mean we behave and perform better, inspiring us to try harder as individuals, so that collectively we thrive. The three core values that our school is built on underpin all we do.

We believe that great learning comes from:


  • We treat every person and thing as we want to be treated
  • We are respectful, polite and courteous at all times
  • We help others at all times

Hard Work

  • We never give up
  • We remain positive so that we have the strength to persevere with even the hardest work   
  • We do what it takes, for as long as it takes


  • We are true to ourselves and others and we do not make excuses
  • We look to ourselves to see what needs to be done
