The Dukeries Academy is part of the family of Academy Transformation Trust academies.

Our mission is to transform learning, aspirations and opportunities for all our pupils, and the communities in which they live. We believe that every child matters and deserves a first class education. We believe everyone has hidden potential to be uncovered and nurtured. Our extensive family of primary and secondary academies are based in the Midlands, East of England and South East.

The Success Centre's main aim is to keep our students in school. We recognise that some of our students may experience a spectrum of difficulties which make it hard for them to make the necessary progress and access the normal timetabled curriculum at certain times in their time at the Academy. The Success Centre will respond to need & provide opportunity & support for the students to enable them to make progress & achieve.

Who is the Success Centre for?

  • Students that are having difficulties that are stopping them accessing the curriculum;
  • Students that are on the pathway of exclusions;
  • Students who are disengaged.
