We work in partnership with several local schools, both at primary and secondary level. Pupils and staff benefit hugely from these collaborations and we value these close working relationships with local colleagues.
The Olympus Academy Trust
As part of The Olympus Academy Trust pupils enjoy joint activities and access to staff and resources in all four of our schools. Staff share expertise, provide mutual support and challenge one another to push for ongoing improvement.
This is an informal partnership of four local schools where staff will regularly meet to discuss and consult on their approaches to a wide variety of topics such as changes to the curriculum, procurement, assessment and reporting. Development and training on in-service days is sometimes shared.
Pickwick Learning Teaching School Alliance
We are extremely excited about being a partner in the Pickwick Learning Teaching School Alliance (PLTSA). The schools, nurseries, businesses and university members in the alliance work collaboratively to improve standards and life experiences for all pupils and adults.
This work involves the ‘big six’ areas of Schools Direct Initial Teacher Training as follows:
- Continuing Professional Development

Good use is made of transition information which gives the school a holistic picture of each child. Links made with local pre-schools and home visits help children settle into school life.” Ofsted
