Following the 2016 Ofsted report, the academy has been put on "special measures".

In 2010, 57% of pupils achieved 5 or more GCSEs at grades A* to C, including English and Maths; 56% of boys and 58% of girls did so. 95.4% of pupils in 2010 achieved at least one GCSE at A* to C


Acle Academy arranges for special talks that are open to the public, and works closely with village groups, such as the, Acle Community Archive Group, Acle Archaeology Project and Acle Youth Club. The school works in partnership with its feeder schools, partner high schools, local businesses and other learning providers. Family learning is promoted by running weekend events such as the Science Day.[citation needed]
