Two Sheffield primary schools are to join a newly-formed Academy Trust on April 1.
Hartley Brook Primary School and Hatfield Primary School in Sheffield will join Carrfield, Goosacre, The Hill and Highgate Primary Academies, all based in Barnsley, within the Reach4 Academy Trust.
Reach4 was established in 2015, with a view to working with primary, secondary and all-through schools in the South Yorkshire region. It is a sister trust to REAch2, the largest primary academy Trust in the country. Reach4 is jointly led by Sir Steve Lancashire and Libby Nicholas.
Designate CEO, Libby Nicholas said: “It is fantastic news that Hartley Brook and Hatfield Primary Schools are joining the Reach4 family.”
