Goole Academy serves a local community which has its roots in industry, coupled with a rich maritime history. Located just off Junction 36 of the M62; many students, but not all, live within walking distance. The Academy is fed by a total of 10 primary schools which vary significantly in size. There has been a recent surge in popularity with the overall number of children on roll rising sharply. Numbers in Key Stage 4 are progressing towards our Pupil Admission Number (PAN) of 210. However, in KS3 we have had a record number of first choice applications with us exceeding PAN for the last three years with 280, 240 and 270 first choice applications. This is unprecedented for us, and the trend looks set to continue. In September 2023 we had close to 1200 children on roll. An increase of almost 400 children in the last four years. Goole Academy has become the school of choice in the local area.

The Academy prides itself on providing its students with a first-class education. Since joining Delta Academies Trust the school have moved on a strong upward trajectory. Huge improvements in the quality of education have seen academic outcomes improve significantly with levels of student, staff and parent satisfaction that have never been better. Highlights from this year include:

1. Record breaking progress - last year saw us become the top school in both our Trust and Local Authority for Progress 8 (+0.57). This ranked us in the top 300 schools in England.

2. Record breaking attainment - for the first time ever over 50% of our students achieved a strong pass in English and Maths. Furthermore, for the first time ever we are above local and national average for the Attainment 8 measure.

3. A successful Ofsted inspection which saw the school achieve a ‘Good’ grading.

4. Huge investment across the site with the opening of a £1.6million dining room extension imminent.
