As 2017 dawns (3rd January 2017)

message by Ian Barker, Chief Executive Officer


As 2017 dawns, we add another school to our growing family. It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce the opening of Northern House School (Wokingham).

Set in the leafy suburbs of this prosperous market town, the school serves a wide population stretching across Berkshire and beyond.

The Trust has been busy over the Christmas and New Year holidays ensuring that all the signage is in place and that some sprucing-up activities are completed.

As soon as the pupils are kitted out in their new uniforms, we’ll be snapping pictures and collecting stories for inclusion in our new Trust prospectus which we are planning to publish in February.

By then, we will also have opened the ‘DEN’, an early years nurturing outreach centre in Didcot. This is a project we will be undertaking in collaboration with the Didcot Schools Partnership and supported financially by Oxfordshire.

It’s clearly going to be another busy year. On behalf of the Trust Board, I wish all staff, pupils and their families a wonderful 2017.
