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 approximately 750 young women who range in age from 11 to 19 years.

The girls on site have access to their own Sixth Form provision and a wide range of GCSE, A level and vocational courses as well as many character building extra-curricular opportunities and experiences.

At the Nottingham Girls' Academy we have a strong sense of mission and a clear set of values that underpin everything that we do.


We believe in creating a community empowered with the qualities, skills and qualifications to enter the next phase of life with confidence and ambition.


We strive to fulfil everyone's learning potential.

We value high standards, hard work and a ceaseless desire to improve.

We provide a safe, kind, nurturing and inclusive environment.

We enjoy the journey together.
