RSA Academies

RSA Academies is a small and dynamic group of schools set up as a charitable company by the RSA in September 2011. The schools are in Birmingham, Coventry, the Black Country and Worcestershire with plans to work with further clusters of schools, including one in Bedford.

The schools are a vital connection between the RSA and education, as they provide a real context to develop ideas about what the curriculum should be like and what excellence means, and the schools benefit from the creative, cultural and social ideas and resources of the RSA.

RSA Academies’ Teaching School Alliance

RSA Academies’ Teaching School Alliance

RSA Academies and our three National Teaching Schools; Whitley Academy, Arrow Vale RSA Academy and Holyhead School are delivering a coordinated programme of initial teacher training, teacher and subject leadership development, talent management and succession planning, school to school support, and teacher research and development.

The RSA Academies' Teaching School Alliance will give a high profile to research-rich teacher development, disciplined innovation, and deliver a high quality offer in those subjects most closely aligned with arts, manufacturing and commerce and with the RSA's work.
