Greenwood Academies Trust celebrates success with top ranking in primary schools table

Pupils and staff at Greenwood Academies Trust are celebrating after the Trust was ranked top in a table based on Ofsted performance.

Greenwood Academies Trust supports 24 primary academies, all of which have been judged Good or Outstanding by Ofsted. Meeting the three-year requirement of being sponsored by the Trust, 18 of these academies have ranked top in a table of multi-academy trust primary academies - more than all Trusts which have 100% of their primary schools rated at least Good. The table was compiled by FFT Education Datalab.

The results reflect Greenwood Academies Trust’s continued success and commitment to providing the very best education opportunities for pupils across the East Midlands.

Greenwood Academies Trust has a strong record of improving the educational outcomes for some of the most economically deprived areas of the country, with many of the primary academies rated Inadequate before joining the Trust.

Examples of strong Ofsted reports recently achieved by Greenwood primaries include Green Oaks Primary Academy, in Northampton, which has transformed from Inadequate to Good; Bishop Creighton Academy, in Peterborough, which has improved from Requires Improvement to Good; and Nethergate Academy, in Nottingham, which is now rated Outstanding.

Emma Hadley, Education Director of Greenwood Academies Trust said:

“We are absolutely thrilled that the hard work and excellence of our staff and pupils has been recognised in this way. To have all our primary academies judged as Good or Outstanding is a great achievement and I couldn’t be prouder of progress we have made as a team to best support our pupils and help them reach their full potential.”

Wayne Norrie, Chief Executive Officer of Greenwood Academies Trust said:

“I am delighted to see Greenwood Academies Trust recognised as a leader in primary education. As a Trust, we work incredibly hard to ensure we provide the best opportunities and we will continue to work tirelessly to support and improve the life changes of the pupils we serve.”
