About Us

We have a very strong connection to the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, more commonly known as the Royal Society of Arts or the RSA. The RSA has a history of developing ideas and projects to improve people’s lives and set up RSA Academies to work alongside schools also interested in doing this.

RSA Academies works with the Family of schools, RSA Fellows and external partners such as University of Warwick and the Royal Shakespeare Company to enrich young people’s learning and their capacity to achieve. We also run the RSA Academies Teaching School Alliance. RSA Academies aims to influence the practice of many other schools through the innovative work we do and to inspire our young people to achieve great things.

In addition to the RSA Academies in our Trust, there is another RSA Academy that is in the RSA Family of Academies. Holyhead School, in Handsworth, Birmingham. This ‘outstanding’ school, along with Arrow Vale, formed the RSA Academies Teaching School Alliance.
