All 11 schools are working closely together in partnership to provide excellent structures for all pupils from 3 to 18.
Our three tier structure of First Schools (3-9 years) followed by Middle School (9-13 years), leading to High School (13-16 years) and sixth form provides the complete learning journey of children. Our shared vision includes a focus on high academic achievement in a caring environment.
During the year the Chairs of Governors, Headteachers and Staff meet to find ways in which we can work together to discuss curriculum issues, pupil progress, school finances, attendance and joint projects.
In October 2013 we had our first joint open day so that parents could visit all three phases in the learning journey of their children on one day, so they could experience a First, Middle and High School environment.
We hope parents are able to see the benefits of the three tier education system in the area and how closely we all work together for the benefit of children, their learning and development.
