Welcome to DSLV

An all through academy for 3 to 19 year olds – challenging all to achieve their potential.

We are proud of our record of success at DSLV and aim to be creative and innovative. Our first Ofsted Inspection as an all-through academy commented that, "This is an improving a result, students' achievement is improving".   A recent subject inspection of English stated that, "Students leave DSLV with attainment that is above the national average.....Some students make outstanding progress."  In April 2012 we converted to an academy as a member of the E-ACT academy chain.

Over the last few years we have set new records for achievement at GCSE.  In 2013 we achieved our best results ever in Mathematics and overall saw the highest percentage of students achieving at A*/A.  Results in the Triple Sciences improved strongly and Music, Art, PE and Psychology also achieved their best ever results.

 At KS2 the 2013 results show an improvement of almost 30% achieving Level 4 in both English and Mathematics over the last two years.  There has also been a significant increase in children achieving at Level 5 since 2012.  We are proud of our young people and their achievements.

We successfully launched a Sixth Form for A Level students in September 2011 with a dedicated Sixth Form area and facilities.  After our first set of A Level results in 2013 we were delighted that all students who had applied to university gained a place with 83% going to their first choice.  In September 2013 there will be over one hundred and twenty young people studying for A Level subjects in our  Sixth Form.

Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village is an all-through academy for children of nursery age to nineteen.  We believe that it is of immense benefit for young people to be able to move upwards through our academy rather than having to transfer to different schools as they become older as this is often associated with dips in achievement or unhappiness.  The launch of our Pathways Curriculum has been a huge success and from September 2013 this approach will extend to Years 5 and 6 for Literacy and Numeracy.  We have also introduced an extended day every Thursday so that all DSLV pupils participate in clubs and activities. 

We are delighted that many children continue to join us in Year 7 from around twenty other primary schools across the South West of Northamptonshire, as the quality of education at DSLV is widely recognised.  We will continue to develop throughout this year so please keep a regular check on the website for the latest news.
