Our sponsor

The Academy is sponsored by the Nottingham Roman Catholic Diocesan Education Service (NRCDES), which is committed to challenging and supporting all its schools to become outstanding.

The NRCDES will take the lead on school improvement and will challenge traditional ways of thinking on how schools are run and what they should be like. The NRCDES will seek to provide expertise across a range of skills such as business acumen, legal advice, financial management and administration in order to support this drive for school improvement.

In sponsoring this academy, the NRCDES will:

  • continue to promote the diocese’s distinctive Catholic values and ethos
  • articulate a clear educational vision for the academy that champions the ability of all pupils to achieve their potential
  • develop effective governance arrangements that focus on school improvement
  • ensure the academy moves to ‘outstanding’ in terms of Ofsted inspection outcomes
