We would like to invite families to an 'Attendance Workshop' at 5pm on Wed 14 Nov. The workshop includes a free pie, peas and chips meal. If you would like to attend please contact the academy office with names and numbers. https://t.co/qcLc4ROBoA
Many thanks to the Youth Centre for working alongside us to help students prepare a delicious meal. They all made a great contribution and loved the monster donuts! https://t.co/NkgfcIxVp4
The Dukeries Band and Choir students will be taking part in a sponsored walk to help raise money for the school Paris Trip. Please email Jodie Otway Head of music on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to sponsor the 35 students taking part in this walk.
Only 10 schools (out of 74) in Nottinghamshire are classed as being above average. Only 19 have a positive progress score. This will include The Dukeries Academy then. https://t.co/7kyOv8ATa9
Another amazing Dukeries student doing amazing things. Well done Georgia Bannister. Along with her Grandmother, she abseiled down Derby Cathedrals Tower (212 feet tall) on Saturday & raised £315 on her own for Rainbows Children's Hospice, (a Hospice for life limited children). https://t.co/03t6TZwemZ
