The Dukeries Academy provides over 100 activities per week, with free after school provision for students in years 7 and 8.
All students in years 7 to 11 are required to wear school uniform. Your child’s shoes, hairstyle, plus any makeup and jewellery must also comply with the regulations.
From year 10, students study a core range of subjects; English, Mathematics, Science, Physical Education, Religious Education, ICT, Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship.
We will then work with you and your child to select additional subjects. Subjects available are either within the English Baccalaureate, or are Vocational Qualifications.
In this way, students are able to tailor their studies based on their abilities and aspirations.
Our aim is for our students to gain the qualifications and skills necessary to follow the career of their choice.
Although academic achievement is at the core of what we do, we believe that school should be about more than just passing exams.
The Dukeries Academy provides a broad range of extra-curricular and community activities, to help your child to become a confident, capable adult.
We’re incredibly proud of our students. Their hard work here at The Dukeries Academy prepares them for a broad range of careers.
On leaving The Dukeries Academy, some of our students go directly into work, while others continue their education at University, including Oxford and Cambridge.
