About our School

Sunnyside Spencer Academy is located in Chilwell, Nottinghamshire. We converted to Academy status on 1 May 2014, joining the prestigious George Spencer group of schools, known as the Spencer Academies Trust.

We welcome children from 3 to 11 years of age and offer a rich educational environment comprising of a well-balanced SHINE curriculum and many varied extracurricular experiences. We have high expectations of the children academically whilst at the same time acknowledging that many of our children have strengths which lie in other areas. We endeavour to recognise and develop these strengths in order to give our children the best foundation possible upon which to base their future.

We are part of the Spencer Academies Trust, therefore children at Sunnyside Spencer Academy are included on their admissions policy.
