On the 1st September, STEP Academy Trust were pleased to welcome Wolsey Infant & Nursery School as the 14th member of the STEP family.
Whilst the pupils were enjoying a well-earned summer break, the STEP Central team were hard at work to join the infant and junior school (already part of STEP) together. This work included changes to the infrastructure of the schools as well as internal layout of the schools to ensure a more pleasing learning environment.
John Halliwell, an existing member of STEP’s Senior Leadership Team and National Leader of Education, will take up the roll of Executive Headteacher, with a focus on bringing the staff and pupils of the two schools together, as part of the STEP family.
STEP Academy Trust are a vision and values led organisation, with hubs in South London and East Sussex. Their founder and CEO, Mark Ducker was awarded an OBE earlier this year, for his services to education.
