Academy update

News from across our Multi-Academy Trust

Autumn term 2015

There is nothing quite like the build up to Christmas in

schools and it is something I miss from my days as a teacher.

I know how proud pupils and staff feel to share festive

accomplishments with family and friends and I hope you

have all been able to participate in some way yourselves.

Of course it is a privilege of my job throughout the year to

spend time at our academies, ensuring that the Trust

provides the support, direction and opportunities to enable

our dedicated staff to deliver excellent education. Evidence

of our academies' achievements and the significant progress

made by pupils can be found in this year's results and I

commend pupils and staff on all their hard work.

I was delighted recently to welcome academy leaders to the

University's Graduation ceremony at Chichester, not only to

support the University on an inspirational day but to

congratulate three particular graduates who are now

starting their careers as Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) in

our academies. The occasion reminded me of our many

strengths as a University Academy family, as we welcomed

our bright new employees, marked the achievement of staff

members who gained Masters Degrees and also saw the

award of a prestigious honorary doctorate to our own Board

member Philip Robinson for his long and continuing

contribution to the University and to education.

As we celebrate the many and various successes of 2015

may I offer my warmest wishes to all of our Academy Trust

family, friends and supporters for the Christmas season.

From the Chief Executive Officer

Our academies are always lively, happy places but it is extra special to be part of a

school community at this exciting time of year.

Sue Samson

Chief Executive Officer
