Welcome to Djanogly City Academy

Djanogly City Academy is an 11-18 secondary school situated in the very heart of Nottingham.

We are dedicated to serving our community and providing the very highest standards of education to the young people who attend our academy.

Our guiding principles are Work Hard, Be Kind and Achievement: No Excuses. We expect every member of our community to follow those values, both staff and pupils, and we will work tirelessly to ensure they are upheld.

Work Hard, Be Kind

At Djanogly City Academy we value traditional qualities; hard work, honesty, good manners and consideration for others.

Through applying these values fairly and consistently we shape and mould our students into confident, mature and independent young people.

Every child can succeed

Djanogly City Academy is committed to providing our students with the very best start in life. We believe that every child matters and with the correct support, guidance and care, every child can succeed.

We understand that every student is different and we will provide the individual support and guidance that will allow your child to reach their full potential both academically and as a young person ready to enter the wider world.

Djanogly City Academy also values the opportunities and benefits that extra curricular activities can offer. We are developing an exceptional range of after-school activities providing every student with the opportunity to explore their full potential.

At Djanogly City Academy we believe that outstanding, inspiring and exciting teaching is critical to the happiness, well-being and progress of every child.

To ensure this takes place we have a clear set of expectations that informs all the work we do at Djanogly City Academy.

  • We have high expectations of students and staff
  • We believe every student can succeed
  • We will ensure barriers to learning are challenged and overcome
  • We expect teaching to be well planned, varied and stimulating
  • We believe learning should be active, focused and engaging
  • Student centred learning

    To ensure that every student at Djanogly City Academy is working at the correct level we have developed a tiering system centered on a child's individual needs.

    Tiering allows our teachers to deliver lessons carefully designed around the learning needs of the students in each tier. The tiers are regularly monitored and students can move tiers when their learning needs change.

    Tiering is a cornerstone of the belief at Djanogly City Academy that every child can succeed.

There are two libraries at the Academy catering for students in all year groups. Each library is resourced with specially selected material to support the curriculum at each Key Stage.

Both libraries are open during school hours and students are able to access them independently at lunch and break times. Author visits, workshops and competitions are organised throughout the year.
