The Trust is considering expanding to support secondary academies, along with an all-through Free School. The two academies that joined the Trust in 2012 have made rapid improvements from performing well below the Government’s Floor Standard to being high-performing academies with a Good OfSTED rating. The other three academies are improving rapidly. As an academy sponsor, support is provided for back office functions that include Finance, HR, Legal, Communications, Capital and policies.
As the current School Improvement contract ends July 2015, the Trust is tendering for a provider who can support the academies to achieve the Trust’s ambitions for their academies to be centres of excellence with outstanding teaching and leadership. The provider will implement school improvement strategies that will build leadership and teaching capacity in order to sustain improvements in our academies.
