Academisation and the Yare Education Trust

On Tuesday 12th September after months of research and consideration the Governing Body of North Walsham High School voted unanimously to start the process towards Academisation and then to join the Yare Education Trust.

This process commences with a period of consultation in which all stakeholders are given the chance to comment and ask questions about the process. This period of consultation will further inform the Governing Body before they make their final decision.

The Governing Body and the leadership of the school believe that both academisation and joining the Yare Education Trust offers many great opportunities to North Walsham High School and its continued journey of improvement.

Attached is a letter written by the Chair of Governors detailing the decision and the procedures to be followed during consultation.

Consultation Letter

The first chance to ask questions will be at the Parents Forum at NWHS on Wednesday 20th September 2017.
