Update on Schools joining the Trust
Bandon Hill Primary School, Sutton
Bandon Hill Primary School in Sutton, South London, has been granted approval by the Regional School Commissioner to become an academy and join the Greenshaw Learning Trust. The necessary formal arrangements are underway between the school, the Greenshaw Learning Trust, the Department for Education and Sutton Council, and it is expected that Bandon Hill Primary School will join the Greenshaw Learning Trust on 1 September 2021.
Sir John Hunt Community Sports College, Plymouth
Sir John Hunt Community Sports College in Plymouth, has been granted approval by the Regional Schools Commissioner to join the Greenshaw Learning Trust. Many key steps required for the school to convert to an academy and transfer have been completed. However, the school is on a Private Finance Initiative (PFI) shared campus, which increases the complexity and number of legal processes to be completed. The conversion project team will continue to drive this forward to ensure the transfer takes place as soon as possible. The Greenshaw Learning Trust is working closely with the school, and the staff and students are already being treated as part of the GLT family ahead of the transfer.
