Welcome to the Global Academy. A unique school for 14-19 year olds specialising in the fast paced and exciting broadcast and digital media industry.

Students experience everything they need to kick start their media careers, from classroom and studio training to exposure with industry professionals via guest speakers, 1-2-1 mentoring and work experience. Our sixth form students leave the Academy with both a network of contacts and a personal portfolio of media projects.

Global, the media & entertainment company behind some of the UK’s best-loved radio brands, are the driving force behind the Global Academy. They believe it’s crucial to arm students with the proper technical, business and creative skills they need to work in the broadcast and digital media industry, and to help them connect their core studies with vocational skills in a truly practical and entrepreneurial way in an inspirational environment. Global are determined to help young people fulfil their potential and want to extend this opportunity to students from all backgrounds.

Our partnership with the University of the Arts, London (UAL) enables us to offer a rigorous and challenging curriculum. Our students study for GCSEs and A-Levels plus a qualification in Broadcast & Digital Media.
