Nottingham Free School is a relatively new secondary academy that opened in September 2014, serving Sherwood, Carrington, Mapperley Park, Woodthorpe and Mapperley areas.
Nottingham Free School offers a traditional academic curriculum, delivered by experienced teachers with a track record of sustained high quality practice, with an extended school day that offers the unique opportunity of an extensive enrichment programme and academic support.
Nottingham Free School has a very clear and distinctive ethos. Our culture aims to develop highly aspirant students and is centred on our passionate belief that every child can succeed.
Our vision is to ensure all our students achieve a good career through university or equivalent training. Our high aspirations combine the key strands of strong achievement, employability skills and consideration towards others which is summed up in our motto 'work hard be kind'. These principles, which guide our school community, enable our students to reach this goal and be well-rounded citizens who are highly desired by higher education and employers.
