This is a fantastic opportunity for the schools to work in partnership with Extol to ensure the pupils of New Silksworth access outstanding teaching and learning.The logo shown above will be adopted and will be heavily featured in signage around the schools and on the agreed uniform from 1st September. We are also happy to say we have appointed an outstanding, experienced Headteacher, Mr Richard Gartland to work across the schools from September; We know Mr Gartland is passionate about working in partnership with families and looks forward to meeting you in the near future. Thank you for your contunued support in ensuring New Silksworth establishes a school where pupils are proud to attend and that is the first choice for parents within the community of Silksworth.
ALLIANCE, AMBITION, ACHIEVEMENT
There is a lot of work going on behind the scenes with regards to the school's imminent conversion to an academy within the Extol Academy Trust on September 1st 2016.
We are aware that parents will have lots of questions, particularly around uniforms and the name of the school. We will be communicating information on these areas in the near future.
