Consultation to join Nexus Education Schools Trust

This page is to provide our school community with more information regarding our live consultation on Joydens Wood Infant School joining Nexus Education Schools Trust (NEST).

The consultation period runs from Monday 25th April and ends on Thursday 26th May 2022.

The Governors will make a decision after we have had the opportunity to hear your views. We will ensure that our decision will be in the best interests of the present and future children of our whole community.

The Government continues to encourage schools who are Single Academies Trusts (such as ours) to join strong Multi Academy Trusts; as this provides greater opportunities for staff, pupils and school communities to work together and continue to build the most successful and sustainable future. NEST has a strong network of schools; all graded good or outstanding by Ofsted and provides services to schools outside of the MAT.

The NEST schools are:

  • Alexandra Infants School   – Alexandra Junior School
  • Balgowan Primary School –  Bickley Primary School
  • Farnborough Primary School –  Highfield Infants’ School
  • Highfield Junior School  –  Manor Oak Primary
  • Perry Hall Primary School –  Pickhurst Infant School
  • Worsley Bridge Primary School
