NWET SUCCESSES TO DATE


NWET was formed in September 2015 and to date has achieved the following:
 

  • Strong student outcomes at both schools
     
  • Continued recruitment of excellent staff
     
  • The Headteachers have been freed from the business functions of the school to allow more of a focus on school performance
     
  • Effective sharing and benchmarking of school data has enabled better evaluation of performance
     
  • Centralisation of support functions has resulted in significant cost savings
     
  • A Trust-wide improvement strategy focussed on collaboration and support between schools including Executive team support, a cross-Trust dept. review programme and support for underperforming departments
     
  • Effective staff development including a Trust wide teacher development  programme, annual NWET staff conference, and a sharing of expertise and resources
     
  • Increased student opportunities through subject collaboration, joint careers events, Higher Education programme, competitions and student leadership training
     
  • A strong Trust  Board and governance model that allows specialisation at committee level including Local Governing Bodies (LGBs)
     
  • A financially secure Trust able to support and manage further growth of the Trust

 

WHERE NEXT FOR NWET?


We aim to:
 

  • Grow, but in a manageable way - 5 schools in the Trust by 2020
     
  • Remain as an all-girls Trust that has a clear identity
     
  • Include non-selective schools in the Trust to further strengthen the model
     
  • Retain financial stability as the Trust grows by achieving cost economies of scale
