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. Pupil numbers have fallen over a 4-year period but there has been a recent surge in popularity with the overall number of children on roll rising sharply. Numbers in both Key Stages are progressing towards the limit of 210 pupils per year group. At present we have close to 1000 children on roll.
We serve our local community and work closely with partners to plan a set of learning experiences that meet the needs of our pupils. In addition, we use local, national and international labour market intelligence to plan courses to best prepare our young people for life beyond school. We have the highest standards and expectations for all pupils, and we strive to provide a curriculum that respects the needs of all and encourages young people to seek continuous development and improvement.
