Welcome to The Axholme Academy website. I hope that you will enjoy your visit whether just browsing or looking for some specific information. I hope you get a real flavour of our academy where we put into practice our strapline ‘Aspire and Achieve’ every day. Every student counts here, whatever their abilities, talents and aspirations. We want the best for every single one and this is borne out by our excellent results and the many other achievements of our students.
Our academy was inspected by Ofsted on 5th July 2017. The outcome was that the academy has again been judged to provide a good quality of education.
We are delighted with the outcomes of the report. Inspectors recognised that a ‘good’ inspection outcome is much tougher to gain in 2017 than it was in 2013 when we were last inspected and that we have continued to grow and develop as a school and continued to raise standards. Inspectors praised the culture that has been developed in the school in which our students want to succeed and said that our students have high aspirations for the future.
Inspectors found that students feel safe and that our safeguarding is effective. They judged that governors ensure that there are high levels of accountability across the school and that they are proactive in finding out about how the school is working.
Following on from the record breaking class of 2016, who made the 4th best progress of all schools in England with the same entry profile, our 2017 leavers have delivered outstanding results in English and maths and top class results in many other subjects. This is a huge achievement against the background of new GCSE’s being much harder, a new numerical grading system being introduced and the removal of coursework.
Our students worked incredibly hard with great support from their teachers and parents. As far as the headline figures go 76% of our students achieved a level 4 or above in English and maths and 47% gained a level 5 or above.
Our success is attracting more and more students from across the wider area and we now provide transport from Goole, Thorne, Hatfield, Moorends, Reedness, Swinefleet, Haxey and Belton. We welcomed out biggest year group yet into Year 7 last September and this will be repeated in September 2018.

The staff here are really approachable and I cannot believe how much his confidence and grades have improved since I moved my son here. This is an all round amazing academy." - Miss Briscoe
