The National Academy, formerly known as The National School, and also its official name The National Church of England Academy, is a Church of England secondary school on in the Ashfield district of Nottinghamshire, England.
The National Academy was a co-member of the National Tuxford Learning Community (NTLC), a non-statutory federation of the National CE and Tuxford Schools. Since this collaboration began in 2007, several other schools/academies have joined, and NTLC has been renamed Diverse Academies Learning Partnership. The name reflects the ethos of the collaboration; member schools work closely together, sharing good practice while retaining (and celebrating) their individuality and diversity. The school was given Academy Status on 1 August 2011.
The school was built in two phases, in the late 1970s and early 80s. A purpose built science block was added in 2004. Playing fields look out onto open land beyond the northern edge of the town. The buildings have been well maintained; recently, the school was awarded funds by the EFA to upgrade heating, roofing, and security. The site is landscaped and green.
In 2016, the school's performance was above the national average at both Key Stage 4 and 5. At Key Stage 5, there was a 100% pass rate; 79% of grades were A*-C; 56% were A*-B and 36% were at grade A*/A.
