School Trips

CEO's Blog - 9th December 2022 School Trips School trips used to be the highlight of the year for many children across the UK, partly because of how infrequently they happened. It was the novelty rather than the quality which made them special. That's not how we do...

Hi everyone,

A shorter blog than usual this week.

I wrote a small piece in our MAT newsletter (available here) that thanked the staff teams for “chalking off” another half term.

Who’d have thought a little over 12 months ago that all our worlds would be turned upside down.

From conversations we had last week all our schools are busy preparing the “road map” for a full return to face to face teaching.

I’m confident that this can, and will, happen over the course of the next few weeks. I’m also hopeful that as a result of the majority of the staff being prioritised as “essential staff” we can avoid the closure of bubbles etc. etc.

A good news story this week. I received an email from one of our ex students. This young woman worked her way through New Bridge School before moving onto Lumenus. She then received a place at Salford University before last week graduating with a 2:1. I am so proud of her. She’s busily applying to be a script writer and I am certain with her determination she will absolutely succeed. I’m hoping we can share some of these stories with you in a future publication. Watch this space.

Anyway, short and sweet.

Have a great half term,
