Welcome to Springbank Academy and Nursery, our website is designed to introduce you to our remarkable Springbank community. Visitors often comment on the special atmosphere they find here. It is a friendly and welcoming place where pupils feel secure and supported – the perfect environment for learning. We encourage all our children to think creatively, set themselves high standards and to work hard to achieve their full potential.

Our school is at the heart of the community in Eastwood. We welcome participation by parents and carers in all aspects of school life and we look forward to working in participation with you. No one knows your child better than you, and for this reason we very much value your


At Springbank Academy we strive to maintain consistently high standards and to nurture talents and strengths so that every child can achieve success. We work to develop an excitement and enthusiasm for learning which we hope the children will take with them through their lifetime. We strive to make the world a richer place by promoting high standards of behaviour and learning.

Our school motto, ‘Happy, Healthy, Caring, Sporty and Scientific’ encapsulates our approach and the belief and value we place in every single one of our children.

If you would like to find out more, I would be delighted to show you around so that you can see the school in action. Please contact the office to make an appointment – I look forward to seeing you.

Mr Adam Lumley

Don’t forget to catch up with everything that is happening in school by reading the Trust newsletter each week. We will be sending a school newsletter every 2 weeks that will be sent on a Friday with the Trust weekly update newsletter email.

Getting back into a routine can be a great way to prepare for a return to school. Bedtimes and waking times may have changed; try to adjust these gradually so that children are ready for the school day. It may help parents to begin to get the practicalities ready for school – for example clean school uniforms and gather up the school equipment. Remember, the start of the school year will be a big change for many parents too.

With Warm Wishes as always,

Adam Lumley
