Academy trust banned from taking on new schools
9:00am Friday 28th March 2014 in News
The trust in charge of Witham’s two secondary schools has been told it cannot sponsor any new academies until it improves standards.
The Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) is one of 14 sponsors nationwide which has been banned from taking on new schools by the Government.
Since assuming academy status, both schools moved into new buildings in a £50million project.
But the academies were both rated as “requiring improvement” by Ofsted in their most recent inspections.
