Welcome to The Elizabethan Academy


The Elizabethan Academy is a vibrant school where students are encouraged to discover their unique talents and to believe that anything is possible. Students and staff alike understand the importance of excellent examination performance and they work hard to achieve success for everyone in our community.

We are proud to be able to demonstrate that exam results have improved year on year. We also value the skills and qualities that young people need to play an active part in their communities and to make active choices for today and for the future. We strive to ensure that young people have the confidence to be creative, to be enterprising and to think independently.

We also value self-respect and respect for others so that we all have the opportunity to perform at our best. We are proud of our school: its history, as The Elizabethan High School and its vision for the future, as The Elizabethan Academy.

At the heart of our school is a strong commitment to developing independent thinkers, learners and leaders. We understand the importance of engaging young people in their own learning and I hope you will read our section on Independent Learning : Independent Thinking. It will give you a flavour of the kind of school we are and why young people speak so highly of their experiences here.

When we had the opportunity to become an academy,we chose to be a stand-alone academy. This means we retain our own identity, our own ethos and our own drive for excellence. We continue to value the partnerships we have with our Family of Schools and have formed a strong Family Collaboration which supports and challenges each other to provide ‘working together to improve opportunities for all. ‘

We also continue to value the partnerships we have with other secondary schools because, together, we can provide variety and excellence, by sharing our expertise and ‘pooling’ our resources. We currently work collaboratively with St Giles School, Retford Oaks Academy, Tuxford Academy, Manor School and George Spencer Academy.
