RSA Academies is a small and dynamic group of schools. We call ourselves the RSA Family of Academies. There are currently seven schools in the Family who are all based in the West Midlands.
We have a very strong connection to 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 set up RSA Academies to work alongside schools also interested in doing the same.
RSA Academies works with our seven schools, RSA Fellows and external partners such as University of Warwick and the Royal Shakespeare Company to enrich young people’s learning and their capacity to achieve.
RSA Academies aims to influence the practice of many other schools through the innovative work we do and to inspire our young people to achieve great things.
