Barnsley Schools First to Join Astrea

Four Barnsley schools will be the first academies to join Astrea. Carrfield Primary Academy, Highgate Primary Academy, The Hill Primary Academy and Goosacre Primary Academy will formally transfer from the
Navigate Academies Trust to Astrea on 1 April 2016.

Astrea has the highest expectations when it comes to academic results, but the Trust’s aspirations go well beyond the concept of ‘schooling’.

Designate CEO, Libby Nicholas said:

“We are absolutely delighted to be announcing the first four schools to be joining theAstrea family. We have been working closely with each of the schools and the Navigate Academies Trust for some time and look forward to building on the strong foundations in place.

“A Astrea, we passionately believe in ‘inspiration beyond measure’ and are committed to delivering an education with no boundaries. For us, that means not just academic excellence, but helping children and young people develop in the broadest sense through arts, sports, leadership opportunities, enrichment and community.

“We look forward to welcoming Carrfield, Highgate, The Hill and Gooseacre Primary Academies into the Astrea family and, together, working to ensure that every child has the best possible education throughout their time with us.”
