About NCEA Duke's Secondary School

Duke’s Secondary School, a part of the NCEA Trust. We are an 11 to 19 academy based in Ashington and our pupils come to us from across Ashington, Newbiggin and Lynemouth. Many of our pupils move to Duke’s from our partner primary school, Bishop’s Primary, but an increasing number of families choose Duke’s from other schools in the area who are keen to become part of the NCEA story. Duke’s is an exciting place to learn and to develop, and we put a strong emphasis on being the best you can be here – this means working hard, developing great attitudes to learning, and experiencing as many different activities and opportunities as you can.

I am very proud of what our pupils achieve during their time at the secondary campus, with some great successes in sport, performance, charity and volunteering work and many other notable activities. I am equally proud of what our pupils go on to achieve; an increasing number of pupils achieve a place in university when they leave us, some go on to amazing apprenticeship opportunities and others go on to join the world of work straight away. Whatever their destination, pupils leave us as young adults with a wide range of skills, positive attitudes and an array of experiences that set them apart and give them opportunities to progress into many different futures.

We are a Church of England Academy, and as such we are motivated by our belief that every child is made in the likeness of God, and if nurtured, encouraged and challenged effectively, that child will flourish and their LIGHT will shine.
