A school in Oakham has joined an academy trust.
English Martyrs Primary School in Oakham joined the multi-academy trust, which also includes St Augustine’s Primary School in Stamford, as well as one in Sleaford and three schools in Lincoln.
The school officially converted into an academy today (Wednesday) and will now be called English Martyrs Academy.
School administrator Jennier Iden said: “This is the start of an exciting development for our school and will enable us to work more closely with the other local Catholic schools to enhance the education of all of the children.
“We have already met as teaching staff to moderate RE assessments and other opportunities will be arranged for staff to work and train together. There will also be events for the children to work together on a variety of activities.”
