About Us

Above: "Shaping children into responsible young adults with a love of learning is paramount."     Principal, Mr Jordan Kelly.

Route 39 was started by a group of local parents, united by a passion for education and life-long learning. Following two and half years of voluntary work, Route 39 Academy opened its doors as a fully fledged state secondary school in September 2013. It will grow year by year until it has 700 students, including a sixth form. We are currently located in temporary premises in Higher Clovelly while the permanent site is being developed.
