In response to the growing government encouragement for schools to become part of an academy or Multi Academy Trust (MAT), the Governing Body has set up a steering group to investigate academisation. They have been undertaking research and considering what options are available to the school. By looking at this now it means that we can do this at a time and in a way to best suit the needs of the school community.  We feel that, by being proactive, we can better serve the interests of our pupils. We will continue to update you with further information throughout the year.
