The Department for Education has approved Haltwhistle Lower School and Haltwhistle Upper School to become part of WISE Academies. We are pleased to announce that they will both join the WISE Academies family of schools from 1st September 2018, subject to all legal processes being completed.
WISE Academies already has a strong presence in West Northumberland through the successful integration of Adderlane Academy, Prudhoe West Academy and more recently Shaftoe Trust Academy into the Trust. These five schools will form a strong partnership within the WISE Academies West Northumberland Hub.
Haltwhistle Lower and Haltwhistle Upper School will benefit from a supportive partnership with WISE Academies and will also benefit from the strength and proven track-record of this local Trust.
Meetings are being arranged with staff, parents/carers, governors and the local community where the leaders of WISE Academies look forward to engaging with all stakeholders.
