Transfer of our schools to Avanti Schools Trust

Posted by Evan on June 7, 2019

 

We are pleased to announce that all three Steiner Academies – Bristol, Exeter and Frome – will be transferred together to the Avanti Schools Trust. Please find a letter from Lisa Mannall, Regional Schools Commissioner, with details of the decision here.

We are delighted that there is now a clear direction for the future of the schools, building on Avanti’s successful approach to school improvement, whilst building upon the principles on which these schools were originally founded.

The next phase will include a listening period with parents and staff, led by the Avanti team. We are sure that there are many questions, but hope that this decision allows us to begin the next phase, moving forward as a group of schools, together. 

It is important to note that the School Improvement Plans each academy have been working towards, to respond to the Ofsted findings, remain in place, and will continue to be the focus for staff and teachers at all of the academies.

We are grateful to Avanti for their commitment to our schools and are clear that it offers a great opportunity for renewal; to continue to improve the quality of education for the children; and to carry forward the contemporary and authentic vision at the heart of our schools.

Sincerely,

Nikki Doughty, Acting Principal, Steiner Academy Frome 

Joss Hayes, Principal, Steiner Academy Bristol

Paul Hougham, Acting Principal, Steiner Academy Exeter
