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 eight 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 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 they are a global community of proactive problem solvers. Uniting people and ideas to resolve the challenges of our time.
