Photo Comp Voting Open & Brooke Weston Trust among top three most improved Trusts

Happy Friday everyone!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and we have a busy blog for you today, with a couple of key updates involving our community.

Brooke Weston Trust success recognised

Government figures on secondary school performance, based on Progress 8 scores for the past two years, shows that The Brooke Weston Trust is the third most improved Multi-Academy Trust in the country! Which is amazing news.

The Progress 8 score tracks students to establish their level of progress, measuring their grades at the end of primary school with their GCSEs outcomes at secondary level. Using this measure as an indicator of performance The Brooke Weston Trust has significantly progressed up the league table for MAT performance.

The Brooke Weston Trust maintains a number of schools in the region – including two in Oakley Vale: Brooke Weston Academy and Oakley Vale Primary School. So this is great news for all of us in the area – both those who have lived here and seen the schools progress and those joining us in new homes.
