When talking about the benefits of joining the trust, Headteacher Adam Riley, who was appointed to his post in April, said:
“We are a small rural primary school, and joining St Benet’s allows us to tap into the wealth of knowledge and experience which exists in the trust’s current schools, all of which are located in the south of the county.”
The school joins fellow trust members Archbishop Sancroft High School and Harleston Primary Academy in Harleston, Diss Junior Academy and Diss Infant Academy and Nursery, and Dickleburgh Primary Academy. St Mary’s Junior school in Long Stratton is an associate member.
Richard Cranmer, the trust’s chief executive officer said:
“The school shares the trust’s ethos of promoting Christian values, and is an excellent fit in a multi-academy trust which is very much led by the wealth of expertise already found in its schools.”
