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.
