Daubeney Academy

The transition to middle school is an important step in your child’s educational journey. As a school community we believe in the importance of children’s needs, their safety, peace of mind and academic achievement being at the heart of every decision we make.
Young adolescents, particularly from ages 9-13, grow and change physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially at a rate greater than at any other time in their lives, except birth to age two.
As a Middle School, we are committed to providing educational experiences in these middle years (National Curriculum Years 5-8) that will support and nurture young adolescents in developing their unique strengths and talents as they discover their own distinctive personal identities, sustaining and renewing a healthy sense of belonging to their school, their communities and society as a whole.
One of our key aims is to make sure that the life chances of our pupils are improved by building on the excellent work of Kempston’s lower schools and preparing pupils for the requirements of upper school and beyond. To this end Daubeney Academy works closely with other schools in Kempston and elsewhere with the intention of raising the quality of our combined provision.
A culture promoting achievement of the highest possible standards in all aspects is encouraged. Positive attitudes towards learning are fostered through a calm, quiet and orderly atmosphere conducive to enjoyment of learning. We want to empower all our pupils to be lifelong learners with 21st century skills who are productive, responsible and actively engaged members of society.
