Welcome to the June edition of the RSA Academies Newsletter. Read about the exciting projects happening in the Performing Arts Hub like the first Creative Gathering and the vocal music production project. Find out about the new RSA Academies Alumni Network and how we are supporting students to feel confident making decisions about their futures.

There’s also the chance to hear from RSA colleagues who are working with the Open Public Services Network on ‘educating the ‘failing’ 40

And fingers crossed for Arrow Vale and Holyhead School in the TES Awards 2016.
