New Schools’ Trust Established
We have led the establishment of a new Trust, which has been created to build on Oldbury Wells’ strengths. Where appropriate the Trust can support schooling in Bridgnorth and the surrounding area. It can also be used to coordinate the work of equally strong schools – leading to mutual benefits and economies of scale. The Bridgnorth Area Schools’ Trust was registered with Companies’ House in June and was formed on 1st July 2015 – today!
In some ways nothing much has changed… It has been business as usual at Oldbury Wells today. However, behind the scenes the school does now have a new status as the lead school in a Multi Academy Trust. This lead school status is granted to high performing schools with a good or better Ofsted rating.
The Chair of Governors, Judy Mondon said, “We believe that our schools’ continued good performance and stability means that we have been granted this status; we are very pleased with the recognition. We are very proud of the students and the school.”
