During the 2016-17 academic year, Plymstock School was involved in the co-creation of a new and exciting Multi-Academy Trust with a group of local primary and secondary schools. It is with great pleasure that I can confirm that the necessary agreements were made with governing bodies and government agencies during August, and as a result Plymstock School is now a partner of the newly formed Westcountry Schools Trust (WeST), with effect from the 01 September 2017.
The WeST secondary schools are: Plymstock School, Coombe Dean School, Hele’s School, Ivybridge Community College and Callington Community College.
The WeST primary schools are: Dunstone Primary School, Oreston Community Academy, Sherford Primary School (once open), Yealmpton Primary School, Stowford Primary School, Woodlands Park Primary School and Wembury Primary School.
The WeST Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is Rob Haring. He is a National Leader of Education, a member of the South West Regional Schools Commissioner’s team and a former Headteacher of two extremely successful schools.
We are all very much looking forward to working together and building a strong and substantial partnership, which we are sure will provide many exciting opportunities for both our children and staff. However, we will continue very much as before in terms of how we function on a day to day basis, and will retain our individuality and uniqueness.
