NUAST Nottingham University Academy of Science and Technology http://nuast.org.uk/
Nottingham University Samworth Academy https://www.nusa.org.uk/
Ellis Guilford http://www.ellisguilfordschool.co.uk/
With demands for places being high, it is a good idea to make sure you choose at least your top three schools.
You apply online at https://www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/education-and-schools/school-admissions/
All of these schools will be having open days and open evenings VERY EARLY in Autumn Term and I recommend that you go to these events and take your child with you so that together you can make an informed choice about the next stage of their education. Web links are included on this letter and if you download the electronic version of the letter, you can follow the link directly.
For your information, pupils in year seven at Djanogly City Academy will be educated at the Sherwood Campus site which is attached to our school.
