Welcome to Goole Academy and Centenary College

I AM very proud to be Principal of Goole Academy and Centenary College, both members of the ‘outstanding’ Wakefield City Academies Trust.

Our staff are committed to delivering the very best learning experience through the Academy’s innovative Learning Revolution programme, which is all about making sure that lessons ignite a passion for learning and all students are challenged and motivated.  Our state-of-the-art facilities are second to none, having spent millions on our extensive rebuild and renovation programme.

Visitors to the Academy are impressed by our caring and supportive ethos which is underpinned by very high standards of behaviour and uniform.

Goole Academy is more than just a school.  We have an impressive extracurricular offering, which includes a vast array of after school clubs and an enviable programme of school trips both within this country and abroad.

With a team of committed and hardworking staff beside me, I look forward to continuing to work with you.  We recognise the enormous contribution that you, as parents and carers, make in supporting your child’s learning.

We want to ‘exceed expectations’ and, by working together, we will continue to secure transformational change, creating an Academy where everyone genuinely matters; all achieve their potential; and not a single student is left behind.

Together, we are creating an Academy that we can all be proud of.

Principal, Matthew Partington.
