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.
In December 2017, the Trustees and Members took a long term strategic decision to seek a merger with another trust that shares our vision and values as well as the dedication to providing the highest quality public service of education and care for children in Bradford. We are currently negotiating with identified partners and in discussion with the Regional Schools Commissioner; we expect that this will result in detailed proposals to be consulted upon in the spring of 2018.
Nevertheless, the ambition of the Southfield Grange Trust is to work with partners to improve services in the here and now, and we are delighted to be collaborating with the Impact Multi-Academy Trust and Ilkley Grammar School as support partners for Grange, and with Central PRU, Chellow Heights and Delius Special Schools, Swain House Primary and Titus Salt secondary as our strategic partners in the Shanidar Teaching School Alliance, which is working to promote excellent, inclusive education in Bradford and West Yorkshire.
