  • Governance

    Millbank Academy is a Future Academies school. We belong to an ambitious and innovative family of five schools, with a teacher training college and small curriculum unit.

    The Future Academies schools are sponsored by the charity, Future, founded by the social entrepreneurs, John and Caroline Nash. Future’s founding belief is that, with the right support, encouragement and opportunities, there are no limits to what young people can achieve.

    Our sister schools are Pimlico Academy (the Outstanding secondary school to which most of our pupils move to), Churchill Gardens Primary Academy, Pimlico Primary, based in Westminster, and Phoenix Academy in White City. There are strong working relationships between the schools that directly benefit staff and pupils. All Future Academies primary schools follow a subject-specific curriculum that is helping to set new, high standards.

    The role of Future Academies

    The role of our sponsor is to lead the Advisory Body and set direction for our school, fostering progress in all areas of the school’s operations and promoting good use of public funds. Future Academies works with the leadership team to ensure we provide the best learning environment for pupils.
