About The Dukeries Academy

The Principals Welcome to The Dukeries Academy

Principal’s Welcome

Thank you for your interest in The Dukeries Academy.  Our vision is to inspire excellence and maximise opportunities for all.  As a high performing academy, at the heart of the Ollerton community, we support every student to achieve the qualifications they need to progress confidently to the next stage of learning, training or employment. This is not all we do.  To complement their qualifications, we also develop the skills and attributes which will allow our students to become positive change makers in their own and other people’s lives.

Our team of talented staff are friendly and professional, fully committed to the education, pastoral needs and well-being of your child.  At the Dukeries Academy we live our values. We aspire to act with integrity, are ambitious in our purpose and are resilient in our pursuit of excellence.

Our fully inclusive approach provides a strong foundation for every child’s learning, whilst giving them the opportunity to explore and find out who they are and helps them set ambitious goals for their future.

We are passionate about innovative teaching with a focus on continual improvement. We have exceedingly high expectations of our community in terms of attendance, punctuality, uniform, behaviour and outcomes.  Our consistent high standards ensure that Dukeries students are both happy and successful during their time with us.

I look forward to meeting and working with you to ensure that your child receives the world class education they deserve.

Kind regards


Ged Rae
