The Secretary of State has signed an Order agreeing to Priory School joining the Bohunt Multi Academy Trust. The work to bring the two schools together will now begin in earnest. This is a real opportunity for everyone involved in the education of children and young people in Southsea and North East Hampshire to build a strong alliance to develop world class education in both centres. These are exciting times for schools as we use our increasing freedoms to transform education and improve the outcomes for our pupils.
A larger trust will provide both schools with stronger leadership, improved accountability, higher quality professional development and improved educational ideas through professional partnerships; it will continue to improve the education your child receives.
It is planned that the new Trust will begin operation on 1 September 2014.
