The Nottingham Academy is an academy school on three sites in Nottingham, England. It caters for up to 3600 pupils aged 3–19. It is administered by a principal, and each site has a Head of School. The academy is sponsored by the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT).


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 in 2007, the Greenwood Dale School, highlighted by Ofsted in 2009 as one of 12 outstanding schools serving disadvantaged communities and The Jesse Boot School.[1] The Academy was formed in 2009 as city academy.[2]
