Teresa Cooke, headteacher of St Alban’s agreed saying: “Since becoming head of St Alban’s we have really benefited from the support we give to each other and our sense of shared purpose.”
Tony Billings, principal of All Hallows, said “We are really looking forward to the possibility of being joined by others in an arrangement which will make partnership working for the community we serve secure for the future. We whole-heartedly recommend the benefits of academy status.”
