On Friday 1st September, Thinking Schools Academy Trust officially welcomed Bay Education trust and their schools- Paignton Academy, King Ash Academy and Curledge Street Academy- to our Trust. Staff and students at each of the schools were joined by CEO Stuart Gardner, Director of Culture and Development Mandy Gage, as well as other senior leaders in Teaching and Support staff roles.
Paignton Academy, King Ash Academy and Curledge Street Academy will play a significant role in Thinking Schools’ already strong Torbay Hub. The academies' names, admissions, values and staff, including headteachers and teachers, will remain the same. School governors will also continue to play an influential role in the running of the academies.
