Two become one

Two education trusts have combined to become one for the new school year. The South Shropshire Academy Trust and Bridgnorth Area Schools’ Trust have joined together and will have six schools under their umbrella: Oldbury Wells in Bridgnorth, Church Stretton School, Stokesay School in Craven Arms, St Leonard’s CE Primary and Castlefields Primary from Bridgnorth, and Alveley Primary.

“We started talking as two Trust Boards last winter,” says Judy Mondon, chair of the Bridgnorth Area Schools’ Trust. We were thrilled to have had the green light from the Regional Schools Commissioner, which means we can merge and become one Trust from the 1st September 2019.”

John Parr, head at Church Stretton School says, “This new partnership will lead to all sorts of natural advantages as we can share experiences, expertise and training. Some of our staff have already started working together and we look forward to the strength that this new partnership will add.”

Sarah Godden, the Trusts’ executive head adds, “I’d like to welcome the South Shropshire Academy Trust schools and their communities into our joint Trust. We look forward to our partnership work into the future and our shared commitment to providing the very best education for young people in our area.”
