The Southfield Grange Trust has been working to support two very important schools since 2013 when the academy conversion took place. In the recent period, as well as developing Southfield School as a ‘hub’ for SEND services, we have also been supporting Grange Technology College on the journey out of special measures. We are very fortunate to have many dedicated professional experts working at Southfield Grange and we continue to be confident that our services are improving and developing.
We are now pleased to announce the merger with another trust for the future of our schools. The board of trustees of the Southfield Grange Trust believes that it is in the best interest of Grange Technology College and Southfield School, and the education and welfare of their pupils, to join the Co-op Academies Trust (CAT)
The Regional Schools Commissioner and Head teacher Board for Lancashire and West Yorkshire have approved this proposal and set a provisional conversion date of Spring 2019.
The schools are proposing to transfer to the Co-op Academies Trust to gain additional support in improving the educational provision as part of the trust’s plans.
