CEO’s Blog…

CEO's Blog   First of all, can I start with an apology. I totally forgot to do a blog last week! So, Happy New Year to everyone. I wish I had a plausible excuse – but I haven’t really. Our family, like many others, had a rather chaotic Christmas break as both my...

The Omicron Variant

The Omicron Variant I’d like to concentrate this week’s blog on a single item – the Omicron variant. As yet, we are still waiting for our scientists to offer us more secure information but, needless to say, all our organisations have spent a significant amount of time...

Graham’s Blog…

Graham's Blog... First of all, can I start this week’s blog with an apology. I didn’t get round to writing a blog last week. I rarely miss, but I just had one of those weeks! It’s quite interesting as I don’t think I was alone in having 'one of those weeks' – many of...


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,
