A note from our Principal

Welcome to 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-by-the-Sea and Lynemouth.

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. We hope you enjoy looking around our website. If you need any further information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Mr R Atkinson
