NUAST is open to children of key-worker parents and those classed as vulnerable. From the 15th June Year 10 and 12 students should attend only on the days detailed in the letter sent to parents.

Enrichment Activities

NUAST offers unrivalled opportunities beyond the curriculum. We have put together a package of extra-curricular activities that provide NUAST students with a unique set of skills highly valued by employers.

Whilst NUAST offers its students the very best in specialist teaching and facilities, our after-school enrichment programme provides unrivalled extra-curricular opportunities for everyone who attends the academy. Beyond specific enrichment activities, NUAST’s unique links with local and national employers and the University of Nottingham means there is a range of speakers, educational visits and industry challenges available across the curriculum.
