Leigh Academies Trust (LAT) and The Stationers’ Company (SC), signed their first Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in March 2013. As a consequence, Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy (SCWA) in Greenwich joined LAT in September 2014 with SC as its strategic partner.
Considerable progress has been made since, notably the opening of the brand new Stationers’ Digital Media centre to enhance pupils’ interest and skills in future careers in the content and communications sector. SC works tirelessly to provide enhanced educational, cultural and employment opportunities for pupils at SCWA. It has helped to make SCWA one of the most popular schools in Greenwich that Ofsted rated good in all categories in summer 2017.
This week saw the signing of the new MoU. Bob Findlay, LAT Chairman, and Simon Beamish, LAT CEO, joined the Master, Nick Steidl and Clerk, William Alden at a signing ceremony in the garden at Stationers’ Hall. The MoU cements the commitment to carry on working in close partnership to provide outstanding opportunities for pupils at SCWA and where possible, across all LAT academies.
