At The Dukeries Academy we're proud of the success of our students. We believe that we create a climate in which all students can achieve and we provide the motivation for continuing the drive for better and higher standards in order to prepare them well for the next stage in their lives. When our Sixth Form leavers finally leave us, we know they'll be well equipped for achieving yet more success.

Key Stage 4

The number of pupils achieving higher grades continues to improve in the context of new national measures and examinations that are more difficult. 92% of students achieved at least one A/A* or equivalent, demonstrating the pupils at The Dukeries Academy are rising to this challenge and making strong progress.

In English, 70% pupils achieved a grade 4 - 9 (equivalent C grade or above) and in mathematics 53% achieved a grade 4 -9. Amongst the highest GCSE A*-C grades included History at 71%, 70% in RE, 94% in French and 100% in Spanish. In BTEC subjects, pupils achieving a C grade equivalent or above included 97% in construction, 90% in sports studies and 78% in Health and Social Care.

16.9% of our students achieved the EBacc suite of qualifications, which includes English, mathematics, two sciences, a modern foreign language and a humanities’ subject.

The new Attainment 8 measure shows that standards across a range of key subjects are rising too and are now in line with national averages.  

We are very proud that our students successfully secure places in education, employment or training when they leave us.
