The Nottingham Academy is an all-through Academy split across three sites in Nottingham, England. It can cater for up to 3600 pupils aged 3–19. The Academy, the largest school in the UK, is split over three sites. There is a Principal of the Academy and each site has a Head of School. The academy is sponsored by the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT) which is now the sponsor of 21 Academies. The Chief Executive of the GDFT is Barry Day, former headteacher at the Greenwood Dale School.

Becoming an Academy[edit]

The Nottingham Academy is the result of the combination of the former Elliot Durham School, which was the third worst performing school in the country back in 2007, and the Greenwood Dale School, highlighted by Ofsted in 2009 as one of 12 outstanding schools serving disadvantaged communities.[1] The Academy was formed in 2009 [Academy (England)|city academy].[2]

Academic standards[edit]

The Nottingham Academy serves a community facing significant challenges and turns out young people who achieve highly and develop into well rounded, ambitious young people, equipped in all respects for a modern, diverse society.
