RSA Academies are specifically distinctive in that they were set up with the belief that communities and the schools within them know and understand their communities, and know best how to engage with them. Decision making is local – the school improvement journeys in the RSA Academies current schools have been based on local governance and local knowledge.
By being an RSA Academy we have access to a mass of expert resource in the arts, business, design and other areas. We have experts coming to school to support the students in a wide range of fields, because they want to make a difference. There are currently seven schools in the family. Three of the seven schools are, following recent Ofsted inspections, deemed ‘outstanding’. Strong teacher and student collaboration occurs, enabling a range of excellent learning opportunities.A short video explaining the relationship between the RSA and the schools within the Trust.
