Grove Learning Trust

Our Multi Academy Trust (MAT) 

Eastrop Infant and Southfield Junior Schools have been exploring plans to join more formally as a multi academy trust (MAT) since the Regional Schools Commissioner’s Headteacher Board recommended that we form one in April. We consulted with our stakeholders in the spring term and put our proposals forward to the Department for Education. In July, the south west Regional Schools Commissioner – one of eight in England that oversees all academy schools on behalf of the Secretary of State for Education - authorised Eastrop and Southfield’s application to form a new MAT. As you can imagine, we were delighted to receive this news!

We are extremely proud to announce that our new MAT will be called Grove Learning Trust.
