An 'exciting' new chapter awaits two schools, which are set to join together as part of a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT).

Hobart High School and Thurlton Primary School will, once formal government approval has been granted, join together as part of the Clarion Academy Trust.

Hobart High headteacher Jim Adams said: 'This is a natural thing for us to do. We are a community school and we want to work with other schools collaboratively in our community. It is a very exciting time and we are really looking forward to it.'

With Hobart having worked collaboratively with schools across the primary and secondary sector, Mr Adams added: 'We look forward to using our knowledge and expertise to raise standards for the young people of our community and beyond. Most Thurlton pupils go on to Hobart for their secondary education, and this even closer partnership will enable pupils to benefit from the many opportunities it will provide.'
