As a school which is currently a single academy trust, we have recently been working with the Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust to further improve the provision we are able to offer the students within our care here at Tor Bridge High (TBH). As a Multi Academy Trust (MAT), they have capacity that is in addition to that which we can access as a standalone school. This support has been of incredible value to staff at school.
Moving forward, the Senior Leadership Team and Governors here at TBH would like to continue working with the Ted Wragg Trust (TWT) more formally by starting the process of becoming part of the Multi Academy Trust. This will bring many benefits to all of us but ultimately is in the best interests of the students and you, the community we serve.

Dear Parents / Carers
After long and careful consideration and meetings with several other Multi Academy Trusts, the Governing Board of Tor Bridge High are pleased to announce that on Thursday 6th July 2023, they voted unanimously, to pursue becoming part of the Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust (TWT). We have already developed positive relationships with key representatives from TWT and following the consultation period with all of our stakeholders, including staff, parents and students, we feel this decision to be the right one for our school community.
The governors and school leadership team believe that joining the TWT will offer many benefits and opportunities to ensure the values of our school are protected. TWT will provide a greater number of choices as to how the school may develop, will allow the school to continue to improve the opportunities provided for students and support the school in its future development.
This is an exciting time for our school and following the joint due diligence process, we hope that this partnership will be finalised on 1st October 2023.
We thank those parents/carers who took the time to attend the face to face meetings with TWT and took part in the consultation.
The Governing Board wish you a very pleasant summer and look forward to an exciting new term in September.
