Academy Growth Strategy
Tennyson Road Primary School has a long and distinguished reputation as a National Support School for school improvement and collaboration. In local authority control, the school provided outstanding 4-11 provision, leading curriculum development and continuing staff development for Luton primary schools and others in the region, including some academy trusts and chains. We have been in discussion with several schools about applying to join the Trust and these are ongoing conversations.
The office of the Regional School Commissioner has recognised the Trust as having good potential to expand to incorporate a blend of primary academies in the Luton area. Indeed, the local authority expanded Tennyson Road to 3 form entry following its outstanding Ofsted judgement in 2014. The school, now based on two sites, continues to be judged as outstanding and has sustained outstanding outcomes for pupils, and this provides an impressive base for further growth. Interested school leaders and governors are invited to contact the Trust for an informal discussion initially.
