Rushey Mead Academy is a cohort 1 National Teaching School. It also is the lead school in the Leicester and Leicestershire Secondary SCITT.

We are never complacent and want to continue to improve. Our expectations are extremely high for the quality of education experienced by a Rushey Mead student.

The academy has developed strong mutually beneficial links with other schools, not only in Leicester but throughout the country and internationally. Through these links, students have had the opportunity to learn in different ways, including visiting other schools and hosting visits. Not only has this benefited them in terms of their learning but also in terms of global understanding and mutual respect.

Rushey Mead also has strong links with FE colleges, universities and businesses and as a National Teaching academy influences the direction of education nationally.
