About Newmarket Academy

Newmarket Academy is a 'Good' School with outstanding ambition. We know how to make progress, to succeed and to keep striving to do better - and so do our students.

Our students are the heart of the school, the school is the heart of the community and those relationships mean everything to us. Ofsted, who judged the Academy in 2017 to be a 'Good' school, recognised this when they commented that the 'teachers know their students well and in turn students trust their teachers'. They also recognised that our students have 'high expectations of themselves and each other' and we know they have high expectations of us.

We value the success of every individual, their honesty and integrity, celebrate and foster resilience and independence. Our aim is to be a school the community is as proud of as we are of our students. Our students who every day, just like us, strive to progress, succeed and keep doing better.
