Multi Academy Trust
We are delighted to be in a position to advise you that on Thursday 1st November, King Charles I School and Haybridge High School & Sixth Form formalised their working partnership by establishing The Four Stones Multi Academy Trust. Please note that the day to day running of the two schools has not changed.
In establishing The Four Stones Multi Academy Trust we are bringing together two likeminded schools which when combined, we believe, will have the capacity to improve the education and life chances of a larger group of young people. We will always recognise the distinctive features of individual schools in the Multi Academy Trust but will have a core ethos built upon mutual respect and a commitment to the life enhancing value of learning.
We would therefore like to use this opportunity to welcome you as an integral part of The Four Stones Multi Academy Trust and look forward to working with you and for you as we develop and grow into an organisation which is recognised for the quality of what it does and the difference that it can make.
We are most grateful for the support you have given to us in this process and the trust you have shown us in this regard.
