Future Academies

Pimlico Academy opened in September 2008 with Future as the sponsor. Future, founded by John and Caroline Nash, is a charity which aims to help young people succeed; believing that with the right support, encouragement and opportunities, there are no limits to what young people can achieve. For more information visit www.onlinefuture.org.

Since sponsoring Pimlico Academy, Future has gone on to sponsor a small group of South Westminster schools, known as Future Academies.  These schools are federated together under the Future Academies umbrella.  Schools in the Futures Academies group work together and share excellent practice.  Common elements include a high standard of teaching and academic endeavour, an extended school day, with clubs and activities after lessons and an emphasis on the importance of Raising Aspirations.

Pimlico Academy and Pimlico Primary, due to open in September 2013, are both Future Academies.

Millbank Academy has recently become a Future Academy.  Millbank has 450 pupils and was rated Outstanding by Ofsted in 2009.

The Curriculum Centre (TCC) is also part of Future. The Curriculum Centre oversees what is taught in Future Academy schools, helps with the subject training of teachers, and serves as Curriculum Director of Studies. At Pimlico Academy TCC’s responsibility is for Key Stage 3, where the innovative knowledge-led Pimlico Curriculum is being implemented. For more information visit www.thecurriculumcentre.org.

TCC is working with the primary schools in the Future Academies group in developing and supporting their curricula and teaching and ensuring that these best support the transition of pupils from primary school to Pimlico Academy.
