Yate Academy to join the Greenshaw Learning Trust on 1 September

In September 2017, Yate Academy will join the Greenshaw Learning Trust.
Yate Academy is located in Yate, South Gloucestershire (north of Bristol), and provides all-through education from 3 to 19, with a nursery, primary school (called Woodlands), secondary school and sixth form.

The Department for Education (DfE) decided that Yate International Academy should be 're-brokered’ and transferred from its previous academy trust, The Ridings Federation of Academies (TRFA), into a Trust able to provide the support the school requires.

The Greenshaw Learning Trust has been supporting the school, working closely with headteacher Paul Skipp and the leadership team, to help it on its journey of improvement.

Mike Cooper, Chair of the Greenshaw Leaning Trust said: "We are looking forward to Yate Academy joining the Greenshaw family of schools. The values and ethos of Yate Academy match those of the Greenshaw Learning Trust, and the Trust has the experience and capacity to provide the support Yate needs."

Having carried out appropriate due diligence and concluded negotiations with the DfE and TRFA, the Greenshaw Learning Trust has confirmed that Yate Academy will join the Trust on 1st September.
