Academy Location & Premises
Alvaston Junior Academy caters for 7 to 11 year olds and shares a large green site with Alvaston Infant School. Our school is housed in a large single storey building with 14 classes including an enhanced resource unit for children with moderate learning difficulties. We are also fortunate enough to have 2 halls, one used for lunches and sport, the other for assemblies, breakfast club, and AJ’S after school club. The building and grounds are also used by a number of community groups for a range of activities.
We have spacious grounds and playing fields with a range of outdoor equipment including an outdoor table tennis table, different areas for children to play and a garden area.
Alvaston Junior Academy is a Health Promoting School and have recently been re-awarded the Healthy Schools Award for the second time. Pupils are allowed to bring fruit for snack at break-time and are encouraged to bring their water bottles daily.
