Official Opening - Studfall Infant & Junior Academies
Wednesday 19th September 2018 marked the day of the official opening for Studfall Infant Academy and Studfall Junior Academy that celebrated their conversion from local authority schools to academies. They both joined the Trust on the 1st of June 2018.
To commemorate the opening, both Studfall Junior Academy and Studfall Infant Academy held assemblies followed by teddy bear picnics involving pupils and staff members.
Wayne Norrie, Chief Executive of the Trust, attended both assemblies and formally welcomed pupils and staff to the Trust before Mike Hamlin, Chair of the Trust Board formally opened the academies by unveiling a plaque at each site.
Wayne Norrie said: “We are delighted that the Studfall Infant Academy and Studfall Junior Academy have joined the Trust and they will help strengthen our presence educating 3-19 pupils in the Corby area. The pupils and staff will be able to work very closely with all our other academies across the Trust but also in the local area. Each has a superb, highly skilled and dedicated staff team and we are confident they will be a huge asset to our group.”
Kim Kirchin and Louise McGeachie, Principals said:
“We are very excited to be part of the Greenwood Academies Trust. Both Studfall schools have already benefitted from working with other academies across Corby in the Trust and we are really looking forward to continuing this great team work. The Greenwood Academies Trust shares our commitment to communities, families and children; together we will continue to offer a great education to the children of Corby. Exciting times ahead!”
