Welcome to Brackensdale Spencer Academy

At Brackensdale Spencer Academy, we are committed to providing a high-quality of education for all children and a caring ethos in which each individual achieves their full potential. We teach this through our 3 values which are woven into everything that we do at school. You will hear the children and adults referring to them regularly throughout the day.

A ‘Brackensdale education’ is about developing the whole child and providing opportunities for them to flourish within and beyond the classroom.  Our children are at the heart of everything we do and we pride ourselves on maintaining positive relationships with home.

We are proud of our Enhanced Resource unit, made up of the Ark (EYFS and KS1) and the Phoenix (KS2), which caters for children who require specialist provision around communication and interaction, primarily children with ASD.

In addition to being a highly valued local school, Brackensdale Spencer Academy provides a professional learning community for teachers, parents and carers. Working to provide an exemplary education for local children, we partner with local schools; community groups and other education providers under the umbrella of The Spencer Academies Trust.

Brackensdale Spencer Academy 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.
