Nottingham Girls' Academy

About Us

Sponsored by the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust, the Nottingham Girls' Academy opened in September 2011 in the premises that were occupied by the Manning School for Girls.

The Academy provides exceptional resources for our pupils who range in age from 11 to 19 years and enhance the quality of teaching and learning.

The girls on site have access to their own Sixth Form provision and we have introduced a wider range of GCSE courses as well as new A levels.

At the Nottingham Girls' Academy we have a clear vision for the future. We are determined that our girls are able to achieve well and leave us as confident, compassionate and articulate young women with the skills to support them through the rest of their lives. Through high standards in teaching and pastoral care we expect to prepare our girls well for entrance to higher education, high quality employment and the future careers of their choice.

We will foster a caring, supportive and happy environment which will encourage our girls to flourish. In terms of behaviour, uniform and Academy standards we are very traditional and have high expectations. We expect pupils to wear the full Academy uniform correctly, attend well, behave respectfully to others and to work hard.

We want our girls to be proud to belong to the Nottingham Girls' Academy and proud of their achievements. Whatever our pupils' backgrounds, we want them to be in the best possible position to move on to a successful life beyond the Academy, whether it is in education, training or employment.
