The Corsham School to become a Multi Academy Trust

To all parents & carers

As you know, The Corsham School became an Academy in April 2011. As part of the academy conversion process we named Corsham Regis Primary School as one of our partner schools that we were collaborating with and supporting.

Earlier this year, the Department for Education asked us to formally cement this partnership by becoming a Multi Academy Trust, (as opposed to a Single Academy Trust) by sponsoring the conversion of Corsham Regis Primary School to academy status.

We are delighted to tell you that this process is now well underway and we are on target to complete the conversion by 1st January 2013.

This means that the two schools would come under the umbrella of one ‘Trust’ but will effectively continue to operate as two distinct schools. Although Regis will take up the new name of, Corsham Regis Primary Academy, The Corsham School will continue with the same name.

We see this as a prestigious move that will allow us to continue to develop and share expertise between the two schools for the benefit of all our students.
