St Mary & St Chad CE First School in Brewood and The Rural Enterprise Academy in Penkridge have today both joined Penk Valley Academy Trust.
The trust, which now runs seven schools, is based in South Staffordshire and offers education to over 2,000 pupils aged 2-19. All schools in the trust are either First Schools (nursery to Year 4), Middle Schools (Year 5 to Year 8) or High Schools (Year 9 onwards).
Academic progress at all schools in the trust is particularly strong and GCSE and Post-16 results have been consistently amongst the best in the local area for many years. All schools are very popular, with most year groups being oversubscribed.
For both schools it will be business as usual when they come back in September, but behind the scenes being part of Penk Valley Academy Trust will allow the schools to run efficiently and collaboratively alongside other like minded schools, ensuring the very best practice in the classroom.
