Children, young people and staff at NOA’s Ark Nursery, Cravenwood Primary Academy and Seahaven Academy are all enjoying their first day as part of United Learning.
A pre-school on the site of North Oxfordshire Academy in Banbury, NOA’s Ark has chosen its name to reflect the close relationship that the two schools are forming. As part of joining United Learning there are plans in place for a brand new building that secures the nursery’s future for local families.
Also joining the Group today are Cravenwood Primary Academy and Seahaven Academy. Cravenwood joins other popular United Learning schools in Manchester including William Hulme’s Grammar School and Manchester Academy. Seahaven, previously known as Tideway School, is a new secondary academy in Peacehaven, East Sussex.
Welcoming the nursery and two schools to the Group, United Learning Chief Executive Jon Coles said:
'I am delighted to welcome NOA’s Ark, Cravenwood and Seahaven to the Group. We have already been working closely with each of them and will be introducing them to many of the other schools in the Group in the near future.
'All three have expertise and experience in their respective phases of education to contribute to the Group and we look forward to offering a great deal of support in return.'
