We are delighted to be sponsors of the City of London Academy Islington. We believe the Academy offers a bright new start for education in our community and brings fresh and exciting opportunities to gain the best results and benefits for our local young people. Both the City of London Corporation and City University London have long and successful track records in providing high quality educational services to their local communities.
The City of London Corporation, which provides local government services for the Square Mile, already has responsibility for the Sir John Cass Foundation Primary School and three independent secondary schools, which are regularly featured among the top performing schools in the country.
City University London is an internationally renowned institution with more than 100 years of experience of teaching, learning and research. Its reputation for excellence in professional education and close contacts with professional institutions, business and industry, brings valuable resources to the Academy staff and students.
As sponsors, our vision for the Academy’s development is based on high expectations of achievement and a passionate belief in the power of learning. The Academy is characterised by an inclusive ethos and a determination to inspire every student to reach their full potential. We all want the best education for our young people and the best environment for our students and teachers. We are working towards the City of London Academy Islington becoming an outstanding Academy that everyone who lives in the local community deserves.
