I would like to welcome you to NUSA's website. The website acts as a source of the latest news and allows parents/carers to access homework and other important messages.

NUSA is a very special school taking advantage of the support from our sponsors. Our fantastic facilities provide incredible opportunities for learners to excel. Our motto for students is 'work hard, be kind' which provides the basis for an excellent all round education. We welcome the support of parents and partner organisations as we continue to make NUSA a school worthy of its community.

About NUSA...

NUSA's predecessor school, William Sharp, closed to pupils at the end of July 2009, and the Nottingham University Samworth Academy opened in September 2009 before moving into purpose-built accommodation in September 2010.

The new building provides a safe, welcoming and accessible learning environment for pupils of all ages, and for community use - and has been created to be more environmentally-friendly too, with a green living roof, rain water recycling and a biodiesel boiler using renewable energy. The restaurant is the hub of Academy life, with stylish environment and quality menus. It is available for community use, including family dining.

Upcoming Events...

  • No events within the next two weeks.

There will be a celebration event for Year 11 students, starting at 10:15am in the Lecture Theatre.

Students unable to collect their results on the day have a number of options, as to how they can receive their results:

No results will be given out by telephone under any circumstances.

Students who do not opt for the above and do not collect their results on the day will receive their documents through the normal post.
