CEO Briefing June 2021

Ah - summer time! Even with the delta-variant-associated risks to national lockdown measures being lifted on the 21 June, it’s still been grand to have felt the sunshine and to have seen such beautiful azure skies over the last couple of weeks. We finally got some consistently good weather for a half term break, which feels like it lifts the whole mood of the country.

Work has recently started on the erection of our new school building, Discovery Academy, which will be opening in Sheffield in September 2022. The pandemic has delayed the construction work on the new school site by 12 months, which has been a disappointing yet unavoidable consequence of the last year. Here’s a picture of the foundations being laid for part of the building, which was taken about 6 weeks ago:


We’re super excited about what the new school will bring to the local area and to our Trust, and we’ll be commencing recruitment from the spring of 2022.

Work at The Bridge continues apace, and it’s lovely to hear from Heads about how excited families are for their children to be moving to a new learning environment without losing their connection with the schools they know and trust so much. A new website, www.thebridgehub.org, has been launched which has more information about what we’re developing, why and with whom. More content will be added over the coming weeks, too!

We have recently advertised for a Trust Speech and Language Therapist which a number of our academies have asked for. There’s so much happening, and we’ve only got 5 weeks or so left! Sleeves definitely rolled up…

See you all in school, soon!
