The Nottingham Academy is a very large organisation with new and refurbished buildings and a capacity for 3780 pupils. The Academy opened in September 2009 on the three sites of its predecessor schools, Greenwood Dale 11-19, Elliott Durham 11-16 and Jesse Boot 3-11. It is one of only a handful of all-through 3-19 schools in the country with its own nursery, primary, secondary and sixth form provision.
As the Academy is so large it is organised on a 'schools within a school' model, each school has a Principal, and the Lead Principal oversees leads and manages the whole Academy.
There are three sites of the Academy. Two sites serve the Sneinton and Bakersfield areas and the third serves the Mapperley and St Anns areas:
