RSA Academy is a highly regarded and desirable 11-18 community school and were judged by OFSTED as a ‘GOOD’ school in June 2016. OFSTED said:

  • Teaching is good because teachers have been trained effectively and supported by leaders.
  • Pupils have good attitudes to learning and they are keen to work hard and try their best.
  • Behaviour is good. Pupils are respectful, polite and well-mannered.
  • The principal, skilfully supported by senior leaders, has created a culture and ethos where staff have high expectations of themselves and their pupils.
  • Subject leaders are trained successfully to lead their areas. They check teaching and pupils’ progress effectively so that any pupils who are falling behind are quickly helped to catch up.
