Academy Specialisms

Academy Specialisms

The City of London Academy has two specialist areas; these are Business & Enterprise and Sports. Both specialisms are committed to raising attainment for all students in all subjects.

The characteristic common to both the specialist areas is ‘Enterprise’. It is used extensively throughout the Academy in all subject areas to improve learning, employment and life skills, leadership skills, self-esteem, citizenship, creativity and the ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The Benefits for students include:

  • A broad range of opportunity to experience different sports in KS3
  • An increase in option choices at KS 4 & 5
  • More specialist teachers
  • More planned opportunities to develop the skills of enterprise, self-reliance and problem-solving across their subjects
  • Business & Enterprise / Sports activity week
  • Opportunities to set up their own business through the Young Enterprise Programme
  • Gain accreditation in a range of sports coaching programmes, including the Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • The benefits of sponsorship by the City of London Corporation with regard to business expertise, and support for our work experience programmes

The Academy also works very closely with the Southwark School Sports Partnership in the North of Southwark to promote excellence in PE and sport.
