A message from Steve Hopkins, Chair of the Redhill Academy Trust

Redhill was the first secondary school in Nottinghamshire to gain an “outstanding” Ofsted rating for the quality of teaching and is now the only one to have achieved this twice in succession.

The Redhill Trust prides itself on providing an outstanding education for secondary aged students from Arnold, Sherwood, Mapperley, Carlton and Eastwood. Our three highly regarded academies operate under the experienced leadership of our nationally recognised Executive Principal, Andrew Burns.  They promote an ethos of very high expectations and the importance of academic success for all our students.

We are a locally based Trust, made up of local parents whose own children have or currently attend our successful academies. We will not accept anything but the best for our own children and believe that all local children deserve an equally outstanding education.

If you have a son or daughter currently at primary school, I would urge you to consider one of our academies as your first choice when they move up to secondary school.
