City of London Academies Trust and Sponsors


The City of London Academies Trust is driven by the ambition to provide world-class experiences and deliver exceptional educational outcomes for the young people we serve. You’ll find high expectations in all of our schools which are characterised by a common understanding of what makes outstanding education.

As well as being judged by excellence in examination results, our success is also characterised by high standards of behaviour, sporting and creative achievement, as well as the politeness, self-discipline and the compassion of our pupils. It is important to us that pupils enjoy learning and feel safe and happy at school and we enable them to develop their confidence, independence and self-awareness required for their future success and well-being.

City University 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.
