Welcome from the Principal
I am delighted to introduce you to the Nottingham Girls' Academy. I am extremely proud to be the Principal of this Academy which is sponsored by the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust.
At the Nottingham Girls’ Academy, we strive to fulfil everyone’s learning potential within a kind, nurturing and inclusive environment. We value high standards, hard work and a ceaseless desire to improve. But, most importantly, we enjoy the journey together.
“The school’s values run through its work like the proverbial letters through a stick of seaside rock… the staff turn the values into action. The result is a close relationship between the pupils and the staff.” – Ofsted, November 2016
Our calm and welcoming environment allows girls to make excellent progress and achieve academically, whilst developing their character through an extensive extra-curricular programme and superb pastoral support. We celebrate our diversity and are proud of who we are.
“The school is a cohesive and inclusive community, characterised by harmonious relationships among the very diverse range of groups of pupils represented.” – Ofsted, November 2016
Research shows that a single sex environment empowers girls to realise their potential. We will prepare girls to take advantage of all the opportunities which life offers them. The dedicated and specialist care we will offer will support this with our teaching focused solely upon the needs of girls.
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 also believe that education is more than just academic success and aim to develop the whole person with a broad, balanced curriculum, a wide range of extra-curricular activities which we encourage all girls to take part in, as well a wide range of events during the year.
Working together, and with the support from the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust, we will make the Nottingham Girls' Academy an outstanding organisation.
I regard being the Principal of Nottingham Girls’ Academy as a personal and professional privilege and, along with my staff, I am committed to ensuring the future for our students is bright and full of promise.
If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
I look forward to welcoming you to the Nottingham Girls' Academy.
Mr D Tungate
