The new multi-academy trust that is governing both South Axholme Academy and Epworth Primary Academy now has a name.
The body that received parliamentary approval to move ahead in its new role over the summer is to be known as the Isle Education Trust.
Headteacher Marie Lister said: “Building on this year’s strong academic success, with 85 per cent of our pupils achieving grade ‘C’ or above in Maths, we are confident in providing our children both at primary and secondary stages with an exceptionally high level of education.
“We are immensely proud of our GCSE students with our maths results placing us in the top one per cent of schools nationally! And, as the development and implementation of IET continues over the coming months we will ensure all our pupils continue to be engaged and enjoy their time with us, and parents are confident in their choice of education provider for their children.”
The team that has been created with personnel from both primary and secondary sectors will support the learning of Epworth Primary school children throughout Key Stage 1 and 2 and their transition to the secondary stage.
South Axholme Academy has always enjoyed strong links with its seven feeder primary schools in the area. Summer schools have been held, assistance is given in Music, PR, Drama and Foreign Languages and students at the school already help through a reading mentoring programme.
“These are exciting times for all pupils, staff and parents who will benefit from the newly formed Isle Education Trust,” said Mrs Lister. “Not only will it allow us to become even more successful academically, we will also enjoy individuality to provide children with holistic learning experiences, up-to-date equipment and implement systems and procedures that will mean our children leave here as well rounded adults.”
