The Future of Tilstock Primary School

A consultation event to discuss the future of Tilstock Primary School will take place in the Tilstock school hall on Monday 11th September at 6pm. All interested parties are welcome to attend to discuss views on the proposed conversion and joining the Marches Academy Trust, as a sponsored academy.

The Marches Academy Trust has been chosen as the preferred sponsor for Tilstock CE Primary School following a decision made by RSC Headteacher Board. Tilstock Primary School, currently under the control of the Interim Executive Board (IEB) and Acting Headteacher, Nicola Brayford, has had its sponsored academy conversion application approved and is currently in a consultation period.

The Department of Education (DfE) approached The Marches Multi-Academy Trust earlier this year, requesting their agreement to sponsor Tilstock CE Primary School’s application to become an Academy.

Mrs Sarah Longville, Executive Headteacher of The Marches Academy Trust, commented: “We place young people at the centre of all that we do and feel strongly that academies should enhance the educational provision of an area. We are excited by the benefits more formalised collaborative working could bring and the prospect of greater opportunities for the young people of the Whitchurch area”.
