Having converted to academy status at the heart of the L.E.A.D. Academy Trust in May 2017, Da Vinci Academy is an increasingly successful secondary school with around 650 students and an increasing school roll. In Summer 2019, we were proud to be the most improved Progress 8 school in Derby.

Academy Trust, a strong and clear vision is in place - one team changing worlds. Our vision is achieved by supporting all to Aspire, Believe, Learn, Achieve.
