The Governing Body of Broadwater School in Godalming Surrey, is proposing that the school should become an academy and join the Greenshaw Learning Trust.
Broadwater School, under the leadership of Mrs Matthews and her team, has improved significantly in recent years. It has become increasingly popular with families and enabled its students to achieve the school’s best ever GCSE results in 2019.
In conjunction with school leaders, governors have been evaluating opportunities to ensure that the school builds on these successes and have concluded that the best way forward is for the school to become an academy. The Governing Body believes that the best way of retaining the school’s values and ethos, whilst continuing to provide and further develop the best possible learning environment for its staff and students, is for it to become an academy as part of the Greenshaw Learning Trust.
Subject to the necessary agreements being reached between the school, the Greenshaw Learning Trust, the Department for Education and Surrey County Council, it is expected that Broadwater should join the Greenshaw Learning Trust on 1 January 2020.
