Academy update

News from across our Multi-Academy Trust

Summer term 2015

When the University of Chichester established our

Academy Trust in 2012 it purposefully set out to bring

together a diverse family of schools that would each

contribute something distinctive to the group whilst gaining

from a new relationship with the University.

Already we include nursery, primary, junior and secondary

phase schools and educate children with a span of needs

from two to 16 years. Our academies are in city, suburban

and village settings across three local authority areas. They

range from brand-new and not-so-new to the oldest state

school in Portsmouth.

With different local challenges and varied levels of past

performance, some of our academies need more support in

school improvement than others. Working together as a

supportive learning community alongside experts at the

University's Institute of Education we can meet the needs of

our academies in ways that also contribute to staff

professional development and inform education research.

It is interesting to reflect that the Latin origins of the word

"University" (when "universitas" meant "whole" and also

"community") embody the way we work together with our

academies with a clear common vision - that all young

people will enjoy an inspiring education that equips them to

have fulfilling lives.

On behalf of the Academy Trust I wish you and your families

a very happy summer break that manages to be both fun

and restful.

Sue Samson

Chief Executive Officer

From the Chief Executive Officer

It's been a busy and fulfilling year for the University of Chichester Academy Trust

and our six very different academies.
