Parents and carers will remember that earlier this year our school opened a consultation about converting to academy status. Alongside Romiley Primary School, we also shared plans to form a new Multi Academy Trust (MAT) called the Helix Academies Trust.
We can now confirm that these plans have all been approved by the Department for Education. This means that the process of academisation will now commence, which is likely to be completed in the Autumn of 2024. We are confident that this positive change will be to the benefit of everyone connected to both schools, and will enable us to continue to improve the quality of education that we currently offer.
We will be in contact with further updates when appropriate.
