Rushcliffe re-accredited as World Class

Rushcliffe Spencer Academy has successfully been re-accredited as a World Class School. The award was confirmed at a virtual awards ceremony earlier this month. The school are one of only a handful of schools nationally that have re-accredited a second time during the pandemic and held World Class status for 6 years.

A number of pupils have been working behind the scenes on the re-accreditation process over the last few months, ably supported by Mr Crawley.

Although the re-accreditation process sampled the accomplishments of smaller groups of pupils, the outcome reflects the amazing and varied achievements of all our pupils together with the skills that they demonstrate. Our pupils have continued to do so many impressive things in spite of the limitations and challenges of the last 15 months – and have been well supported by their families and our staff team to do so.

A number of pupils were nominated for individual World Class ‘Character’ Awards’, which is a fantastic achievement.
