Nottingham Girls' Academy

About Us

Nottingham Girls’ Academy currently educates approximately 840 young women, who range in age from 11 to 19 years. The roll continues to grow year-on-year and the Academy is now oversubscribed throughout Key Stage 3. 

Pupils study towards a broad range of GCSE and vocational qualifications and are encouraged to participate in an array of character building extra-curricular opportunities and experiences. 

The Academy opened in September 2011, in the premises that were occupied by the Manning School for Girls. A brand new main teaching block was opened in 2012 and the remainder of the site was fully refurbished or demolished to create recreational areas. 

Pupils have access to a range of exceptional resources and facilities, including purpose built science laboratories, computer suites, technology rooms, a dance studio and sports areas.  A brand new, 350 seat dining hall has recently been constructed. 

Those who wish to (and meet the entry requirements) can continue their study at NGA Sixth Form, which occupies its own area of the building and delivers a broad range of A Level and Level 3 Vocational courses. 

Ofsted most recently inspected the school in November 2016, confirming its ‘Good’ status.
