Two academy trusts have launched a consultation over plans to merge into a single body overseeing 18 schools across Norwich and north east Norfolk.
Having recently made a decision to share a CEO, Yare Education Trust and Boudica Schools Trust are consulting stakeholders on a proposal to formally join together to create a single new trust.
Linda Steynor, chair of the Board at Yare, said: “The case for creating a new trust is incredibly strong but to assist us in making a final decision, it’s crucial that we take on board the views of stakeholders and that is why we are consulting with them now.”
Her counterpart at Boudica, Neil Bloomfield, added: “Our focus will always be on delivering the best possible education offer we can for our pupils and that will be the key consideration throughout this process.”
