About Duke's Aldridge Academy
Duke’s Aldridge Academy is a member of the Aldridge Education Multi Academy Trust.
The academy 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 academy’s community. The academy’s specialism is for the arts (music, media and art). The academy is fully integrated with the secondary base of the Vale Special School for children with physical disabilities and complex needs which share the campus and buildings.
The academy's motto 'Inspire to Excel' underpins every school action for students and staff.
Northumberland Park Community School, now known as Duke’s Aldridge Academy since September 2017, was judged as `good’ 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.
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 none-teaching staff are valued equally for their contribution to the success of the academy.
Duke’s Aldridge Academy places teaching and learning at the heart of everything we do and continuously supports and trains its teachers to become excellent. The academy 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 and that of academy’s whose children and families are in more fortunate circumstances, as for our children more than others, education and achievement is a vital basis for their future life chances.
