‘From strength to strength’

AD­VER­TIS­ING FEA­TURE

Burton Mail - - News -

OVER the last two years Arch­way Learn­ing Trust has gone from strength to strength. Its four se­condary schools, Blue­coat Beech­dale, Blue­coat As­p­ley, Blue­coat Wol­la­ton and Not­ting­ham Em­manuel School are all sit­ting on Of­sted ‘good’ des­ig­na­tions or bet­ter. More on our most re­cent Of­sted in­spec­tions be­low.

In Fe­bru­ary 2017 Beech­dale saw its first ‘good’ des­ig­na­tion af­ter many years and this was achieved from an in­ad­e­quate judge­ment through less than three years of spon­sor­ship. Em­manuel was wel­comed into the trust in Jan­uary of this year and is al­ready a ma­jor con­trib­u­tor to the life and ac­tiv­i­ties of the trust, beat­ing all other schools in a re­cent MAT Olympics.

Arch­way be­lieves in the ‘trans­for­ma­tional power of ed­u­ca­tion to change lives for all.’ Nowhere is this more ev­i­dent than in the re­cent Of­sted in­spec­tions that took place last May for Wol­la­ton and As­p­ley.

I am de­lighted to re­port that both in­spec­tions went ex­tremely well and both schools have come out of the in­spec­tions in­cred­i­bly strongly. Blue­coat As­p­ley re­ceived an out­stand­ing judge­ment for lead­er­ship and de­vel­op­ment as well as for stu­dent wel­fare, guid­ance and de­vel­op­ment, with a good judge­ment over­all. Blue­coat Wol­la­ton ob­tained a stun­ning out­stand­ing judge­ment in ev­ery cat­e­gory. It is not sur­pris­ing then that both schools now find them­selves full to the brim and we have had to hold over 70 ap­peals for Blue­coat As­p­ley Academy

places in Year 7.

I do hope that as Year 6 Open Evenings come up in Septem­ber par­ents will con­sider the great ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence that be­ing a mem­ber of the Blue­coat ‘fam­ily’ can pro­vide. It has been a great year for Blue­coat, but next year prom­ises to be even bet­ter. Why not join us on that jour­ney?
