Every child has the ability to succeed and it is our aim to ensure that all pupils reach their full potential both in and out of the classroom.

NUSA also benefits from the continued support of its founding members, the University of Nottingham and the Samworth Trust.

We are proud of our school and invite you to join our future success.

"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, with a special purpose. NUSA was built to provide the opportunities for our pupils to excel, both in and out of the classroom. Our motto is ‘work hard, be kind, which we expect students and staff to uphold at all times. We welcome the support of parents and partner organisations as we continue to make NUSA a school worthy of its community.
