Dear parents/carers

We are writing to you to update you on an exciting development for the Nonsuch and Wallington Education Trust (NWET)

As you know, over the past two years we have been working with both schools to establish the structures and systems of NWET. We believe that we now have the basis of a model that allows both schools, and your daughters, to benefit from the collaboration that the Trust brings, giving and receiving support to each school where needed to secure strong performance whilst still retaining each schools unique identity. Alongside this we have also centralised the support functions across the Trust (HR, Finance and IT) in order to be more cost efficient and meet the financial challenges that all schools are facing and we now have a model that could be easily adapted if the Trust was to expand.

One of our strategic aims as a Trust is to grow in a manageable way, retaining our all-girls’ identity and remaining within the London/South East region. We believe that NWET will be strengthened by the increased opportunities for collaboration and the benefits of further economies of scale that growth will bring. The further strengthening of the all-girls identity will also allow us to continue to develop as a centre of excellence in girls’ education ensuring we can provide your daughter with an excellent standard of education.

Towards the end of the last academic year we began talks with the Governing Body of Carshalton High School for Girls’ (CHSG) about the possibility of them joining the Trust. Both NWET and CHSG have very similar visions, strengths and synergies and both organisations are committed to delivering excellence in girls’ education. The NWET Board and the CHSG Governing Body have evaluated the potential advantages to both parties of CHSG joining the Trust and agree that these strengths and synergies can be further enhanced by expanding the Trust to include CHSG. This would allow all schools in the Trust to share and develop their knowledge and expertise in girls ‘education and ensure that they continue to secure strong outcomes for all students.

We are therefore launching a consultation on the proposal for CHSG to join the Trust. This will run from Wednesday 20 September 2017 until Monday 6 November 2017 alongside a thorough due diligence process. It is anticipated that the NWET Board and the CHSG Governing Body would be in a position to make a final decision at their Nov/December meetings and if the outcome is to go ahead then the aim would be that CHSG joined the Trust in February 2018.

We would also like to bring to your attention two decisions we have made as a Trust Board in order to support our plans for growth:

1. To better reflect the future composition of the Trust as it grows, we will be changing the name of the Trust, with the preferred name being Girls’ Learning Trust. We will confirm this in due course.
2. Jane Burton’s role will change from Executive Head to Chief Executive Officer (CEO) which better defines her role as the strategic lead in a growing Trust. The Headteachers in each school will continue to report directly to her in this role and we believe this CEO/Headteacher structure more accurately reflects the status and responsibilities of the Headteacher in each school as there is no longer any confusion with the Executive Head role.
