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
- encourage teachers’ creativity
We work with a number of schools for pupils aged 3-19, all of which are currently 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 young people to achieve great things.
We were set up by the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce). The RSA believes in a world where everyone is able to participate in creating a better future. Through ideas, research and a 30,000+ strong Fellowship the RSA is a global community of proactive problem solvers. Its purpose is uniting people and ideas to resolve the challenges of our time.
