Brigantia Supports Yewlands Academy

In late summer, Brigantia Trust was asked by the Department for Education (DFE) and the Regional Schools Commissioner (RSC) to provide support for Yewlands Academy in NE Sheffield.

After careful consideration by the Trust Board, we agreed a plan to support this school from the start of the new academic year (2017-18). Mr. Winslow (formerly Head of Secondary) is providing interim leadership, alongside staff and consultants from our trust. The impact of their work has already led to rapid improvements.

On the 11th January 2018, following a period of consultation, the DFE formerly identified Brigantia Learning Trust as the agreed sponsor for Yewlands Academy. It is likely that Yewlands will join Brigantia Trust before the end of this academic year.

This is great news for Yewlands, and is a reflection of our strong reputation as a group of schools and a Trust.
