Freebrough Academy has been given the opportunity to take part in a new project that will run jointly between all schools in East Cleveland, Middlesbrough and Cleveland Police. This new project, Operation Encompass, has been designed to provide early reporting to schools of any domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of normal school hours and that might have had an impact on a student attending school the following day.
Matthew Knight is starting on the next step of his career after gaining a place at Teesside University to study BA (Hons) Television and Film Production. Matthew is the first student from the newly formed Post 16 to gain a place and attend university. Matthew is continuing to study Creative Media which is a passion that was ignited during his time at Post 16.
Once again the Year 11 had a fantastic time at this year’s prom. Hosted by Gisborough hall and with the theme of Alice in Wonderland, the Year 11 really did end their time at Freebrough in style!
Thanks to the excellent fundraising efforts by the prom committee, the students were treated to a 2 course meal followed by; a sweet cart, lots of dancing and of course everyone’s favourite the photo booth!
Creative Monkey, our Post 16 student run business, were on hand to take those ‘more formal’ photos as souvenirs to remember the fantastic night!

An exciting new service is being launched here at Freebrough Academy; an electronic payment system, a convenient and secure way for parents to pay for their child’s school meals online. This system is called sQuid and will be available shortly. No more need to carry cash, simple, secure and safe, that’s sQuid.
Please keep checking here on our ‘Latest News’ section for updates and information on how parents can access the service.
In July 2015, 44 Freebrough Academy students travelled to Paris for a trip of a lifetime. Every year the Business & Enterprise/Modern Foreign Language faculty offer students the opportunity to visit a foreign country and this year the location was Paris, France. The group travelled to France by coach and then through the Eurotunnel and despite travelling through the night were in high spirits ready to sightsee the next day.
At Freebrough Academy we recognise the importance of creating an attractive, positive and welcoming environment for students, staff and visitors. We are continually looking at ways in which we can develop the building to meet the needs of all of our stakeholders.
During the summer break we have made some significant improvements to the building which we hope will benefit all of those who use it.
