Welcome To Future Academies

Information regarding Covid-19

Future Academies’ highest priority is the wellbeing of its pupils, staff and wider communities.

We are following the Government and Public Health England’s advice on managing the COVID-19 virus and have been closely monitoring the situation. As such, we have taken the decision to close Laureate Academy, Pimlico Academy, Phoenix Academy, The Bushey Academy,  Pimlico Primary, Millbank Academy and Churchill Gardens Primary Academy.

This closure comes as a result of the unprecedented challenges that COVID-19 presents to our communities. This week, student attendance has decreased, alongside an increase in staff absence due to the latest guidance from the Government and Public Health England.

At present, these schools will remain closed until Monday 20th April 2020. Any further closures will be communicated here, or if you are a parent/guardian, via letter and text message. The school will operate a monitored answer machine for urgent messages; details on this can be found on the individual school websites.

During this challenging time, we hope to minimise the disruption to our students’ education as much as possible and we have set students work to complete on a daily basis.

We are implementing plans to provide food for students eligible for Free School Meals; parents/guardians have been contacted directly on this.

Thank you to all staff, both those in the classrooms and those who work behind the scenes, for their commitment and sacrifice during these times.

Please follow the latest guidance from the Government and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.


Libertas per cultum – Freedom through Education


Future Academies was established to improve the life chances of children through an education that is built on the importance of knowledge-rich teaching by subject experts and of raising the aspirations of all. Our family of schools has built a reputation for achieving the highest standards for all our pupils.


The name ‘Future’ is important to us because the education we provide today is designed to ensure all our children can achieve the best in their future lives. A knowledge-rich aspirational curriculum with a focus on cultural capital delivered by expert teachers is our raison d’etre and is transforming the life chances of the children and young people in all our schools.


We are an inclusive community where all children are welcomed and challenged to be the best they can be. With the support of our sponsors, Future, we are able to engage with the best teachers, the best universities and a wide range of the most prominent employers in the country to ensure that all our children are equipped with the knowledge and desire to be the best in whatever path they wish to follow in their futures.


My passion in education has always been about ensuring the highest quality education for all children. As Chief Executive of Future Academies, I am fortunate to work with sponsors, directors, governors, teachers, support staff and school leaders who share that passion to do what is best for all our young people and their families.


Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Any parents with further questions or who would like to visit one of our schools are warmly encouraged to contact us.
