Welcome to The Dukeries Academy


We know that choosing your child’s secondary school can be a difficult decision. You want to find a school where your child will be happy and where they will receive support and encouragement to achieve their potential. We believe that The Dukeries Academy offers all this, and more.

Academic achievement is at the core of what we do. We want your child to leave school with good qualifications which will provide a solid grounding for their future work. But this is not all we do. We want to give your child the skills for a happy and successful life.

Our teaching methods will provide a firm foundation for your child’s learning, while giving them the opportunity to explore and to find out who they are and what they want to do. We are passionate about innovative teaching, whether through IT, varied teaching methods or community involvement. This is a world-class education.

Don’t just take our word for it, come and see for yourself at our next open day. We’d love to meet you and your child.
