Nottingham University Samworth Academy
The Nottingham University Samworth Academy replaced an unpopular comprehensive school on a Bilborough council estate. The academy -- already oversubscribed -- offers an inspirational setting for the transformational change taking place under its roof. However, more needs to be done to sustain and grow excellence within NUSA. At the heart of the academy movement is the belief that all children are entitled to schooling that makes the most of their potential. The University's sponsorship of NUSA, in partnership with local businessman Sir David Samworth, bears witness to our own commitment to this belief. The University is committed to making this academy a beacon of innovation and outstanding practice, that will make a real difference to the life chances of its students.
