Dear Parents/Carers, I am pleased to inform you that on the 1st May 2014 we successfully converted to an Academy.
In March Governors formed Witton Park Academy Trust and now have all the responsibility for the Academy. Because we are a good school, and have the capacity to become an outstanding school, Lord Nash, Under Secretary of State for Schools, granted approval to convert as a stand-alone Academy.
As an independent Academy we will continue to work with other schools within the borough and now have greater flexibility and freedoms to develop a curriculum that best suits the needs of our students.
GCSE results are expected to further improve on last year’s results, our target this year is 70% 5 A*-C’s including Maths and English, which would place us in the top 25% of schools nationally.
We expect continued success in the future, particularly with your support for both your child and the Academy.
