Nene Education Trust welcomes two more schools

A local multi-academy trust continues on its exciting growth plan after welcoming two new schools into the Trust this month.

The Nene Education Trust is now a network of seven academies after Woodford CE Primary School and Raunds Park Infants School joined their five existing schools; Manor School Sports College, Stanwick Primary Academy, St Peter’s CE Academy, Windmill Primary School and Newton Road School.

Chris Hill, the Trust’s CEO, said: “Welcoming two new academies into our family of schools is a testament to the confidence we have in our ability as a Trust to offer schools real added value in their strive towards excellence in education.”

“The additional schools mean that we have a broader and stronger organisation in which to share ideas and resources. Our aim is not to grow quickly but to have a network of locally-based schools where we can not only raise the aspirations of the children in our schools, but the whole community.”

“We continue to strive towards our ethos and vision of developing the whole child through: Developing Character, Raising Aspirations, and Celebrating Achievement”.

Mrs Kristel Murphy, Associate Principal of Woodford CE Primary School said: “The staff and children of Woodford CE Primary School are so excited to be part of the Nene Education Trust and this wider community and school family.”

Mrs Lisa Jeffrey, Headteacher at Raunds Park Infants said: “We are delighted to have joined the Nene Education Trust and look forward to the new opportunities this will bring the children and staff. The journey to becoming an academy has taken several years, with the governors wanting to be sure that it was the right move for the school. It is clear that the values of the Trust match those of Raunds Park Infant School, and we can see the many benefits of closer collaborative working with the other Trust schools in the local area.”
