The Dukeries Academy

Whinney Lane New Ollerton Newark Nottinghamshire NG22 9TD

“The Dukeries College is a unique and special place. In the words of Ed Balls (Secretary of state for Children, Schools and Families), “This is really the kind of school we would like to see right across the country. I call the 21st Century School. It’s really pulsating at the heart of the community and it is ambitious for every child and young person to do well. It’s brilliant to see!”. We are a specialist 11-18 Technology College with Adult and Community Learning. We believe whole-heartedly in educating the ‘whole person’. Therefore, in addition to providing a broad and balanced academic curriculum, we offer a huge range of extra activities and opportunities to our students.”
