Welcome to our Trust Newsletter where we share news, activity and achievements from our schools and the academy trust. We have pulled together some of the school activities and achievements that took place before the Coronavirus shut down but would like to continue to fill this newsletter with activities and achievements our students are still making at home and in school. Many of our schools remain open for critical workers children and vulnerable children. Please see school websites for details. Our Trust has grown to 28 schools across Cornwall and we now work with 6000 children and young people from Liskeard to Sennen. We were pleased to be the first multi academy trust in the country to be subject to an Ofsted summary evaluation in January 2019, which recognised our Trust as ‘one that schools want to join’.

CCTV was also put it into place so the book shack could be open at all times – Students were encouraged to give a big smile and wave!
