Ousedale to join E-ACT academy trust

The Governing Body is delighted to be announcing that Ousedale will be joining E-ACT ahead of the new academic year in September 2024.

We are proud of being a high-performing school that has an absolute belief that all children can – and will – succeed by becoming successful learners. Our results regularly place us amongst the highest performing schools both locally and nationally.  Alongside this, excellent pastoral care is the norm for us at Ousedale, as are our extensive extra-curricular and enrichment programmes.  We are a truly inclusive school where everyone matters.

Headteacher Andy Burton said:

“We feel that the time is right for us to join forces with a like-minded academy trust, combining our resources to deliver an outstanding education for all our children. This move will also present an exciting opportunity for increased professional development for our fantastic team of staff who will have direct access to best practice right across the country and from all types of school, positively impacting both teaching and learning.

This is a very exciting development for all of us at Ousedale, giving us an opportunity to build on our significant successes to date whilst starting a new chapter within a larger academy trust that shares our vision and ethos.

E-ACT is responsible for 28 academies across the country, with over 18,000 pupils and 2,500 members of staff. This includes two local schools in Daventry, E-ACT Parker Academy and E-ACT DSVL Academy, and three schools in South Buckinghamshire: E-ACT Bourne End Academy, E-ACT Chalfont Valley Academy, and E-ACT Denham Green Academy. Joining E-ACT provides us with the opportunity to work together on a regional basis as well as nationally.”

Without exception, all 28 E-ACT academies have been rated by Ofsted as good or outstanding for leadership and personal development. 97% are rated good or outstanding for behaviour and 93% are rated good or outstanding for quality of education.
