Serving Our Community

At Djanogly City Academy, we recognise that the best schools work in partnership with their local community. A key element of that partnership is listening to ideas to help us to make Djanogly City Academy a school we can all be proud of.

We would like a better understanding of the workings of the Academy and our child's education

Provided parents the opportunity to visit the Academy whilst in session to see a working learning environment

We would like a more consistent and fair approach to dealing with student issues

Held student assemblies explaining and raising the level of expectation. This was supported with a letter home and ongoing 1-2-1 meetings with parents

We would like to have clearer communication from the Academy

Added functions to our website so that it can be accessed in many different languages. Provide letters to inform parents of tier changes and discuss subject choices through parent consultation evenings

We want to have a say in changes at the Academy

Set up a student council so students have a voice in changes and developments to outside recreation areas and building facilities

We would like the lunch queue to be shorter

We have re-modelled the school day to include a split lunch and employed midday supervisors to support ques and canteen areas.

We would like more opportunity to access 1-2-1 teaching and tutoring

We have increased the opportunities available and now have 40% of our year 11 students receiving 1-2-1 tutoring in extra curricular time. We are also beginning to roll this in to year 10.

We would like more to do at break and lunch times

We have provided outdoor table tennis facilities around the academy, allow the use of the astro and courts area for games, offer subject and library clubs during these periods and provided undercover seating areas.

Our primary feeder school were keen to know more about how we work with our students once they arrive with us and want to engage more in liaison work

We have welcomed primary staff in to the academy during the day to look around and visit classes. We are offering link sessions for primary pupils to attend special classes at DCA and hold open events for prospective parents to attend both during the school day and in the evening


Work Hard, Be Kind

Achievement: No Excuses

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.

Having been put into bat we scored 182 without losing a wicket and then managing to restrict Arnold to 107 with 5 wickets going down.

    Yesterday we attended a tournament at Radcliffe Cricket Club. The girls conducted themselves very well, behaved impeccably and played some really good cricket. Out of the 5 games played by both teams (u13s and u15s) each team won one game each, both wins coming against Newark Academy. Other games came very close only losing by a few runs. Please congratulate the girls below on a very successful day (the weather definitely helped)

    MCCF Nottingham Hub

    MCCF Nottingham Hub 106 (29 overs)

    Nottingham High School 103 (29 overs)

    MCCF Hub won by 3 runs.

    A last over thriller which featured some impressive and significant performances from the trio of Djanogly boys who played.

    Fardeen Ahmed bowled some very tight overs in the middle of the innings to restrict and build pressure on the opposition. He also 'banged the drum' all innings to keep his team focused and motivated in the field - What a fantastic ...
