Making it all happen
Bringing our work to life
RSA Academies is led by Chief Executive, Alison Critchley at the RSA in London. A team of three works strategically with the schools and co-ordinates the programme of work that we deliver together.
RSA Academies has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the RSA which sets out the way in which both organisations work together to improve the life chances for students and to contribute to the vision of the RSA.
RSA Academies also has an MOU with the schools that outlines how the schools and RSA Academies work together towards common and individual aims.
The RSA Academies Board is made up of eight trustees. Their function is to set the strategy for RSA Academies and oversee the performance and impact as well as the financial stability of RSA Academies. The Director of Creative Learning and Development at the RSA, Joe Hallgarten sits on the Board as an observer.
The Executive group is made up of the RSA Academies’ principals and the Chief Executive of RSA Academies and their function is to implement and progress the RSA Academies strategic plan. The Chairs of Governors of all the schools also meet with the Chief Executive of RSA Academies.
Each school also has its own governing body. This is made up of local people including parents of students at the school, teachers, and RSA Fellows who are nominated by the RSA. Arrow Vale and Ipsley are also governed by the Redditch RSA Academies Trust.
