FHS joins Excalibur and Ms Mangham asks parents to write to MPs about school funding issues...
I am pleased to announce that on 1st February Fairfield High School joined the Excalibur Academies Trust.
This was marked by a selection of our students releasing coloured balloons to indicate the different ethnicities and nationalities represented here and by the cutting of a ribbon by myself, Patrick Hazlewood, CEO of the Excalibur Academies Trust and Dr. Kieran Kelly, Chair of Governors at FHS.
Our aim is to be outstanding in all areas and we believe that our partnership with Excalibur, a trust which already has an outstanding secondary school, will help us to achieve this. We will have more opportunities to expand and improve including opening a sixth form whilst preserving the individuality of the school, something equally important to both parties. The conversion will also enable us to become more innovative and provide a strong support network that will help to reach our ambitious goals.
