After the last few weeks’ hectic pace, things this week, in schools, have finally started to settle down. However, most of our schools and organisations are still significantly affected by Covid outbreaks. We’ve more children and young people having to self-isolate at...

Invitational meetings, DfE meetings, 3 days of Ofsted, graduation photos, more successful bids, art going viral – this week has had it all. It started with a truly inspirational invitational meeting with our Springboard Project staff.  The executive team were given a...

Goodness – this week has really flown by! It’s quite amazing how some weeks seem to go by so incredibly quickly.  One moment it's Monday morning, the next it's Friday afternoon. So, what I have been involved with? On Monday I was able to give the news to our Hawthorns...

Welcome back everyone. In a normal year, this is the week that many of our Year 8s would have been at Disneyland Paris.  As you know, it’s been a tradition since we opened that all of our children and young people, in all our schools, have access to residential...

A really short blog this week, I’m afraid. The reason - Ofsted were in our Future Finders college on Thursday and Friday. Future Finders is a small specialist college that prepares the students for working life.  It’s based in Pennine House on Union Street in Oldham....

It’s been very much a week of reflecting and planning. We’ve had the “invitational meetings” for all our New Bridge sites, Hawthorns School and Hollinwood Academy. The invitational meetings occur every term and have a number of key functions.  Initially, there is an...

Can I welcome everybody back after half term? I hope everyone had the opportunity to have some sort of rest. We’ve had quite a number of announcements over the last few days, so I’ll try and summarise where our schools and organisations are up to. First of all, on...

CEO’s blog

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...

CEO’s blog

Hi everyone, This week we have spent quite an amount of time planning for the next academic year. As I said last week, it’s really important that all of our teams keep an eye on the future. We need to ensure that our buildings are fit for purpose, our staffing...

CEO’s blog

I’ve been busy, this week, in dealing with a number of National issues. Quite a lot of my time, certainly earlier in the week, was spent dealing with the pandemic. On Tuesday, I was asked by the Education Policy Institute (EPI) to present about our schools’ responses...

Another week passes. So what have we been up to? Last weekend we were sent advice regarding changes to the Lateral Flow tests (for staff). A number of the school teams have been working on revising our models of testing - more news to follow. On Tuesday I sat in on a...

CEO’s blog

I saw a super quote, on a forum, the other evening, “What a week this year has been!” So, lots to tell you all about. Let’s start with an update on lateral flow tests (LFTs). As you know, all our secondary schools had the LFTs delivered at the beginning of term. Our...

CEO’s blog

Happy New Year everyone. I think it’s fair to say that the last couple of the weeks have been some of the most challenging in my career. I’ve been a school leader for well over 25 years. I’ve never experienced anything like it. I think I also speak on behalf of many...

IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR ALL OUR SCHOOLS

Hi everyone, I’m sorry to have to contact you on New Year’s Eve. As many of you will have seen there has been lots of information about schools delaying their openings until later in the New Year. I have just chaired a meeting of all our Heads, and we have agreed on...

CEO’s blog
