Cooperative Trust

By an overwhelming majority, the Governing Body are pleased to let you know that we have agreed to apply to convert to Academy status and join the proposed Cooperative Trust (Connect Trust). This followed a healthy and robust discussion and careful consideration of all of the views expressed during our consultation.

The key reason for this decision is that the Governors firmly believe that this will secure our values, our inclusive approach and the unique character of Countess Wear supported through the Cooperative framework (see overleaf). This also delivers our strategic commitment to securing the long-term future for the school and the very best opportunities and outcomes for our children.
