Inspiring Schools Partnership
The Board of Trustees for Inspiring Schools Partnership (ISP) is proposing that the three schools that form ISP – Stoke Damerel Community College, Scott College and Montpelier Primary School – should join the Greenshaw Learning Trust. ISP already has a strong relationship with the Greenshaw Learning Trust and this is the natural next step to further strengthen and benefit from the partnership.
Colin Searls, Chair of Board of Trustees, Inspiring Schools Partnership, said: “One of our key strategic priorities is to build on our improvement journey in all three schools to ensure outcomes continue to go from strength to strength. The Greenshaw Learning Trust has proven success in school improvement and has the experience and capacity to provide the expertise and additional resources to improve the life chances of our young people.”
Roger Mills, Chair of the Greenshaw Learning Trust, said: “We are delighted that Inspiring Schools Partnership wants to join our Trust. As part of the Greenshaw family, close collaboration with like-minded schools and high quality support services will benefit Stoke Damerel Community College, Scott Medical and Healthcare College and Montpelier Primary on their improvement and development journeys.”
Inspiring Schools Partnership, along with a number of other schools in Plymouth, has informally worked with the Greenshaw Learning Trust for the last two years and this collaboration has helped deliver school improvements.
As part of the Greenshaw Learning Trust, Stoke Damerel Community College, Scott Medical and Healthcare College and Montpelier Primary School will maintain their ethos and place at the heart of their local communities, whilst benefiting from the efficiencies from being part of a larger multi-academy trust that will ensure the schools continue to improve and provide the best start in life to all their students.
Subject to the necessary agreements being reached between Inspiring Schools Partnership, the Greenshaw Learning Trust and the Department for Education, it is expected that Stoke Damerel Community College, Scott Medical and Healthcare College and Montpelier Primary School will join the Greenshaw Learning Trust on 1 January 2021.
