I am delighted to be the Principal of Airedale Academy and look forward to continuing to support and guide our young people through their time with us. I strongly believe that every young person, regardless of their background or ability, has the right to a high quality education. There is no limit to what they can achieve if they are given the right levels of encouragement and support.

Our ethos of ‘Striving for Excellence’ runs through everything we do here at Airedale and we aim to instil this ethos in all of our students. We want to help develop our students in to happy, well-prepared and confident adults, who adopt an ‘I can’ mentality and aim high in all they do. To enable us to achieve this and be the very best we can be, we are committed to working in partnership with students, their parents/carers and the community. Our absolute aim is to make the most of every young person’s time with us.

I would encourage you to explore our academy further; visitors are always welcome.

Mrs E Fairhurst – Principal
