Newmarket Academy (formerly Newmarket College) is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form with academy status located in Newmarket in the English county of Suffolk.[1]

Previously a community school administered by Suffolk County Council, Newmarket College converted to academy status on 1 July 2014 and was renamed Newmarket Academy and became part of the Samuel Ward Academy Trust. However, the school continues to coordinate with Suffolk County Council for admissions.

Newmarket Academy offers an extensive curriculum of subjects and GCSE and A Level courses, and has a busy schedule of cross-curricular study and extra-curricular activities. In the academic year 2014–2015 GCSE results at the newly created Academy rose 15% to 52% A* - C including English and Maths.

The school is committed to being "a school the local community can be proud of".
