RSA Academies sponsors both individual schools and a multi-academy trust to provide an inspirational and creative education of distinct character. Along with a strong commitment to high academic standards we work with schools to:
- prioritise and promote art, culture and creativity
- connect children to, and prepare them for, the world beyond the school gates
- focus on social and emotional wellbeing
We currently work with seven schools for pupils aged 3-19, all of which are in the West Midlands. These schools also work together as the RSA Academies’ Teaching School Alliance. RSA Academies plans to grow into new geographies and to inspire our young people to achieve great things.
We were born from the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, more commonly known as the Royal Society of Arts or the RSA. The RSA has a history of developing ideas and projects to improve people’s lives and we were set up to help schools with that mission.
