About The Dukeries Academy

The Principals Welcome to The Dukeries Academy

I’m delighted that you’re considering The Dukeries Academy for your child’s secondary education. Choosing where to continue your education is a major decision and I believe that The Dukeries Academy is an excellent choice.

The Dukeries Academy is a place where students thrive and are challenged to achieve their full potential. We have high expectations of our students and will provide excellent support to enable your child to achieve their goals and aspirations. But that is not all we do. We are also committed to developing the skills and attributes our students require to enjoy a successful, happy life.

At The Dukeries Academy your child will receive excellent teaching and have the opportunity to thrive under the care and support of our superb team of staff.

We are pleased with the number of students who choose to stay with us through to post 16 and also welcome those who choose to join us from elsewhere. Our enrichment programme is an important part of the sixth form experience, including opportunities to lead and develop the sixth form into the future.

Please visit us on one of our open days to see for yourself what The Dukeries Academy has to offer and to meet our staff and students.

If you choose to join us, I am sure that you will be very happy and successful. I look forward to meeting you soon.
