Hellesdon High School has been officially approved as a new sponsor of academy schools.
The school, which became a stand-alone academy independent of the county council in April 2012, joins a growing list of Norfolk high schools becoming academy sponsors, including Reepham High and Sheringham High.
The decision was confirmed in minutes, published yesterday, of the June 4 Headteacher Board for the East of England and North East London region, which approves applications for new academy sponsors, and other major decisions regarding free schools and academies.
The minutes said the decision was approved 'subject to agreement with trust on governance', and means the high school can set up a multi-academy trust, which would become responsible for other academy schools that join it.
