Colne School and Philip Morant taken over by Sigma Trust
Two crisis-hit secondary schools will be taken over by new multi-academy trust from September.
The Philip Morant School, in Colchester, and The Colne Community School and College, in Brightlingsea, both run by The Thrive Partnership Academy Trust last month entered into a ‘re-brokering’ process.
The Regional Schools Commissioner’s Office invited a number of suitable Multi-Academy Trusts to express an interest in taking on the schools.
Yesterday, Thrive bosses announced both schools will fall under the wing of the Sigma Trust, which already includes seven schools.
