About Us

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Goole Academy. 

I am extremely proud to lead this thriving school at the heart of its community and I am constantly impressed by the energy and enthusiasm of the students here and the warm relationships they have with our staff.  I hope our website gives you a flavour of what the Academy is all about but if you would like to know more, or want to visit, please get in touch and we would be delighted to help you further.

I believe that the relationship between parents, staff and students is crucial to the success of the Academy and by working together we will ensure that students make outstanding progress and leave us with the necessary skills and attitudes to be successful in their future destinations. Our aim is to help each and every one of our students develop into mature and confident young people. We are extremely aspirational, both academically and in relation to personal development.  Each student is treated as an individual and we don’t place limits on what we think they can achieve.  All students are unique and have a valuable contribution to make.

We insist on the highest standards of behaviour and believe in an ethos of respect, courtesy, tolerance and hard work.  We foster a ‘can do’ attitude where students are encouraged to move out of their comfort zone, participate in new experiences and not fear failure.  This, coupled with our state of the art facilities, creates an environment where students flourish.

Please share your feedback about the academy by getting in touch with us, where I look forward to hearing from you.

I am ambitious about the future.  We are on an exciting journey to create a truly exceptional Academy for the young people of Goole.
