Inspection Reports

NCEA Duke’s Secondary School has operated as a new school since July 2018, when The Northumberland Church of England Academy separated from an all-through single academy trust, into a multi-academy trust known as NCEA Trust.  Duke’s Secondary School continues to use the same school identification number (known as a URN) as the previous all-through Academy, and published data from before 2018/19 will incorporate all aspects of what are now three separate schools.


Following the most recent section 5 Ofsted visit to Duke’s, we are required to publish a statement of action to outline the strategies that we are putting in place to try to address some of the concerns raised during the inspection. Parents are encouraged to read the statement and communicate any feedback to the school if they feel they would like to do so.
