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.

Groups in years 7, 8, 9 are mostly taught in ability groups.

The keys stage three experience is broad and balanced in order to keep the option choices in year 9 as open as possible.

Enrichment supports the curriculum with a range of visits and vents planned throughout the year.

Those students that arrive in year 7 that are not secondary ready have an identified separate provision in place. This applies until they can re-join the mainstream curriculum. This provision is referred to as the breakthrough curriculum (see diagram below)
