About Newmarket Academy
Located in the market town of Newmarket, Suffolk, Newmarket Academy is a co-educational secondary academy. The school has around 800 pupils aged 11-18, making it smaller than the average school of its type. The school sixth form is run in partnership with another local secondary school, with pupils taking courses at both sites. Formerly known as Newmarket College, the school adopted its current name following its conversion to an academy in 2014, having previously moved from being a 13-19 school in 2012. Newmarket Academy is now part of the Samuel Ward Academy Trust, a multi-academy group responsible for the running of a number of secondary and primary schools.

Values and Vision
Newmarket Academy aims to become an important part of the local community, and is proud of its comprehensive ethos. As such, the school works hard to ensure that its diverse range of pupils are given equal opportunity regardless of background or academic ability. As such, the school works hard to provide a wide-ranging and extensive curriculum for its students, with off-site provision available for the small number of students who require it.
“Students feel safe and they get on well with each other and the staff. n Students are polite and helpful to visitors. The change of status from a 13 to 19 college to an 11 to 19 college was well planned and carried out. A wide range of activities outside lessons, including assemblies, contributes well to students’ personal development.”
