Academy Sponsors

A Word From Our Sponsors

We are all proud to sponsor Freebrough Academy in East Cleveland, which serves the young people in this area. We each have strong local links and are committed to working with local partners, including primary and secondary schools and colleges, to use our combined expertise and knowledge to create an Academy we can all be proud of.

We believe this is an exciting opportunity to change lives, aspirations and prospects in a broad, balanced and inspirational educational environment. We want to enable each student to develop confidence, understanding, experience and skills that can be used throughout their lives, and to ensure that the local community benefits from the Academy’s facilities and has a positive input into the experience of young people at school.

We want the Academy to become a centre for excellence in learning for everyone in the East Cleveland area.
