Mokshuda Begum, head of school, said: “Our staff and pupils are looking forward to a new chapter and are very excited to be collaborating with other schools in the trust.
“We know this partnership will continue to strengthen our lovely school but also keep true to our core values and ethos of ‘Nurture, Learn, Celebrate’.
Executive headteacher Shelley Reeves-Walters added: “This is a significant moment in the history of our school, enabling us to take advantage of collaboration and sharing best practice with others in the trust.”
Mrs Reeves-Walters is also headteacher at SAET school Wolverley Sebright Academy where strong links have already been formed.
