About Duke's Aldridge Academy
Duke's Aldridge Academy is focused on responding to the needs of its local community and is driven by the determination to provide its students with an excellent education.
The school enjoys a rich mix of culturally diverse students drawn from one of London’s most ethnically vibrant wards. This socio-economic profile shields a positive and vital aspect of our school’s community. The school’s specialism is for expressive arts (music, media and art). The school is fully integrated with the secondary base of the Vale Special School for children with physical disabilities and complex needs which shares the campus and buildings The school's motto: 'Motivate - Aspire - Transform' underpins every school action for students and staff.
The school was judged as a `good school’ in its last OfSTED inspection in November 2016. We have set ourselves the goal of moving from being good to being outstanding in all aspects at our next inspection.
Staff at Duke's Aldridge Academy are extremely hard working and committed and great emphasis is placed on common goals and teamwork. There is a strong philosophy of continuing professional development and ‘raising the bar’ for students and staff. Teaching and non-teaching staff are valued equally for their contribution to the success of the school.
The school places teaching and learning at the heart of what it does and continuously supports and trains its teachers to become excellent. The school has achieved a dramatic improvement in achievement over the past few years, breaking through the presumptions that social deprivation limits attainment. We intend to continue to raise achievement beyond national averages to that of schools whose children and families are in more fortunate circumstances. For our children more than others, education and achievement is a vital basis for their future life chances. The school is the venue for Community Education provided during term time and school holidays.
