Staff Team

Our senior leadership team is ambitious, with high expectations for NLA students and their achievements and aspirations. We have a clear vision for the school’s future, which we make sure that every staff member and student embraces.

We combine new teaching experiences with a deep-rooted knowledge and understanding of our local community, and a pastoral care ethos that provides the best possible support for our students.

We aspire to continually improve NLA, focusing on individual progress, inspirational teaching and creating opportunities and experiences for our students not available elsewhere.
