Spring 2018

Learning to Think and Thinking to Learn

Dear Parents/Carers

On behalf of all four schools I am writing to you as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of The Corvus Learning Trust regarding our academy conversion.

Following our consultation period I would like to thank all stakeholders for their comments and feedback. As you were aware we held a number of public meetings both during the day and in the evenings in order for us to explain our rationale for conversion and for us to receive feedback from those attending. I can confirm following feedback to each of the Governing Bodies and further discussions, the Governors of all four schools have now independently taken the decision to convert to an Academy.

As you may be aware we originally planned to convert on 1st December 2017. However to ensure that all documentation was completed and agreed it was decided that we would convert on 1st January 2018 and I am pleased to confirm that the conversion will go ahead on that date.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the representatives from each of the four schools who sat on the Executive Working Party who have helped to guide us through the process of conversion throughout this last year.

We see this as a very exciting time for our schools, families and the local community as the four schools start to work more closely together for the benefit of all our students.

I look forward to writing to you again in the new year as The Corvus Learning Trust develops.

Yours faithfully


Mr R P Elsey
