    For those who thought I was mad

    I mentioned and NO one believed me that there was a strange named school in Nottingham

    On 26 August 2003 Djanogly City Academy Nottingham officially opened as one of the first of a new type of specialist, state-funded independent school. The City Academy replaced the oversubscribed Djanogly City Technology College (CTC) and the former Forest Comprehensive School which was closed by the Local Education Authority in July 2002.
    all in all it is just another brick in the wall
