Friends of Rockwood and sponsors

Funded by the Department of Education, Rockwood is an academy sponsored by the CORE Education Trust.  CORE Education Trust is the sponsor of two academies/schools in the east of Birmingham – Rockwood Academy (secondary) and Nansen Primary School.

The trustees work hard to support the Academy, providing invaluable support and challenge to Academy leaders. Being an academy gives Rockwood the flexibility to offer a curriculum that best suits the needs of our students.

The CORE academies benefit from direct association with their local communities and educational and industry partners. The values of our neighbourhoods inspire our promotion of tolerance and diversity. We celebrate our global heritage and we are as proud of where we have come from as we are open-minded about where we are going.

Rockwood has a range of partners who give us significant long-term strategic support. They provide exciting opportunities for students to work with businesses on a range of projects, which helps them to progress into higher education or the world of work.
