Fresh start for South Yorkshire Primary Schools

Astrea Academy Trust today formally welcomed four South Yorkshire primary schools into the Astrea family.  Byron Wood, Hillside Academy (formerly Conisbrough Balby Street), Edenthorpe Hall and Greengate Lane primaries are all now part of the academy trust.

The total number of schools in the South Yorkshire area to have formally joined the Trust is now 12.

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

Chief Executive, Libby Nicholas said, “We are very pleased to be formally welcoming four new schools into Astrea; we have worked very closely with the senior leadership teams in each school and look forward to building on the strong foundations in place. We are absolutely committed to delivering “inspiration beyond measure” for all children and young people in Astrea, helping each and every one of them to develop and explore who they are, and what they are capable of.”

Astrea was established in 2015, with a view to working with primary, secondary and all-through schools in the South Yorkshire region.
