Welcome to The Green Flying High Academy

The best for every child, every day.



We are delighted to be able to share with you our vision for education to help you get a true flavour of our school.

We believe that every child deserves the best, every day and at The Green, we strive to provide our children with fantastic  opportunities to expand their horizons and develop into confident individuals, lifelong learners and global citizens.


We believe that all pupils have the ability and the right to be able to achieve wonderful things.

Our aim is to ensure that our children are happy, safe and enjoy their time at school. This is achieved by providing an environment where children feel safe to explore the new challenges and learning opportunities they encounter. 


All our staff are passionate about making children happy, developing their confidence and inspiring them to be successful. We want all of our children to be caring, kind, thoughtful and considerate towards others and feel confident to make relationships. 



Our School also offers:

  • Breakfast Club – We also have a fantastic wraparound care to support those families requiring provision outside school hours. We run a breakfast club on site from 7.30am. After school, we link with JPAC, who provide after school care at The Glebe Junior School. 
  • After school clubs including Sports, Music and many more.

Flying High Partnership


The Flying High Trust is a partnership of schools across Nottinghamshire, Nottingham City and Derbyshire. Schools work together to ensure we are relentless in ensuring our children receive the best possible opportunities and experiences. This is achieved through a true collaboration where all decisions centre on children and schools are empowered to adopt best practice, adapt it within the context of each school and fly!

Chris Wheatley -CEO - Flying High Trust

Hear from our CEO explaining what makes our Flying High Trust different.

We aim for our schools to be the best in the universe! 


By the end of their infant education we aim for all of our children to be ready for junior school and be inspired to be the best they can be through our seven values. The values are fundamental to everything the Trust represents; they run through all elements of school improvement and are understood and owned by all members of the school community. 


As a Trust Partnership our expectation is that all schools: 

  • Demonstrate a restlessness to continually improve, to never stand still, with the ultimate aim of 

providing the best opportunities and experiences for our children. 

  • Strive to ensure every child fulfils their potential regardless of potential barriers to learning. 
  • Commit to become an outstanding, self-improving school and to support the profession and 
  • development of all schools within the partnership. 
  • Commit to a school-led system. 
  • Commit to the values, principles, policies and procedures of the Trust. 
  • To ultimately strive to be the best school in the Universe. 


In our schools you will see we work together to: 

  • Ensure schools feel connected to the Trust whilst maintaining their unique qualities, character and relationship with their community. 
  • Ensure high quality teaching and learning. 
  • Engage with our families and wider communities to raise aspiration for all. 
  • Develop the whole child and create inquisitive learners. 
  • Enable all children to be confident, building on strengths and improving in areas of need. 
  • Enable children to understand the part they play in the world in the future - as a positive citizen and a driver of business and enterprise. 
  • Support the development of all staff to be the best they can be and to realise their career potential.

  • If you apply online or using a paper form, you will be asked to pick four schools in order of preference.
  • One of these schools should be your catchment school, although it does not have to be your top choice.

  • You can find out more and apply online here
  • The school’s catchment area is centred on South Normanton. However, we have always accepted pupils from outside the area. We are proud of our tradition of warmly welcoming pupils from outside South Normanton. All children are part of our family once they walk through our gates for the first time.
