This is the start of an exciting journey for the school as we work closely with the Trinity Multi Academy Trust (MAT) students, parents and staff to improve every aspect of the provision offered to our students.
The Trinity MAT is a family of schools which aim to deliver a consistently outstanding education for its children and young people across the region. Michael Gosling, the Chief Executive Officer of the MAT, was the founding Principal of Trinity Academy Halifax which is the flagship school within the MAT, an Ofsted outstanding provider, and one of the top 10% of schools in the country for GCSE and A-level outcomes. For more information about the Trinity MAT, please visit www.trinitymat.org.
I have worked in the senior team at Trinity since it opened seven years ago and have been Principal for the last two years, this year our students received record results. I am very much looking forward to sharing the ethos, principles and practices that have enabled students at Trinity to experience such phenomenal success.
SBHS students have a lot to look forward to in the coming months. We strive to nurture our young people and provide them with opportunities to flourish, both inside and outside of the classroom, and support them to develop their skills and knowledge whilst gaining confidence and a spirit of a ‘can do’ attitude. Excellent discipline in and around the school will provide a safe and secure environment, whilst also ensuring teachers can focus on delivering high impact teaching and learning without distractions.
I believe passionately that every child should have the right to an excellent education that ‘opens doors’ for them. We will ensure all our students have the opportunity to truly reach their full potential.
I look forward to welcoming you to Sowerby Bridge High School and sharing this journey with you, whether you are a future or current student, parent, member of staff or an interested member of the local community.
James Franklin-Smith (Executive Principal)
