Growing the RSA Family of Academies

Welcoming primary and secondary schools

We are now looking to build on our strong foundation and grow our family to inspire greater collaboration and innovation and be better able to influence broader education policy and practice.

The schools currently in the RSA Family of Academies are in the West Midlands, and this next phase of expansion will be focused in this area, with a view to potentially working in another area in the future.

We would welcome expressions of interest from sponsored and convertor academies (or those planning academy conversion) who have the capacity and enthusiasm for providing support to other schools, and from schools seeking an academy sponsor.  We welcome both primary and secondary schools.

Schools joining the RSA Family of Academies will be committed to the vision of the RSA, to innovation and to working together in our key priority areas.  These schools are likely to be serving a local community with relatively high levels of deprivation.

To find out more contact Colin Hopkins, Executive Director, RSA Academies.

Our Family of Academies is now established and the schools are working together very effectively. We aim for our students to become successful learners and confident and creative individuals. We look forward to expanding the group and extending RSA’s contribution to new thinking about how to make schools the best for students
