Annual Trust Report


The Midsomer Norton Schools Partnership (MSNSP) was founded in 2010 following the hard federation between Norton Hill and Somervale Schools. Both secondary schools serve Midsomer Norton, Radstock and the surrounding villages. Together, we are so much stronger and the partnership that now exists is one that is both exciting and proving outstanding opportunities for children.
The foundations of the MSNSP Trust are linked to a collective desire to support our local community. This area of North East Somerset is a wonderful place to live and work. The two secondary schools aim to provide high levels of personal development and well-being alongside world-class academic progress.

In September 2014 we were delighted to welcome into the MSNSP High Littleton Primary School. This 'Outstanding' primary school joining the MSNSP marked the beginning of closer working relationships between the primary and secondary phase. In March of 2015, Clutton Primary School also joined the Midsomer Norton Schools Partnership. This extremely good school brings further primary expertise to the multi-academy trust. With both High Littleton and Clutton as part of the MSNSP, we were able to bid to open our own primary school. The Norton Hill Primary Free School gained ministerial permission to proceed in September 2015 and should be open in 2017 for the first intake. We know within the trust that the shared learning possibilities between secondary and primary and across schools in the same phase are tremendous, and we hope other schools will wish to join the MSNSP and benefit from true collaborative working.

Working together in partnership really does open up great opportunity. From children in the primary phase using outstanding facilities, for secondaries to learn about pedagogy from primary colleagues and the shared curriculum choices available to the 750 Year 10 and 11 students as well as the 380 students in the joint Sixth Form. Leading this federation of schools is an absolute privilege and it is my belief and that of all the trustees, that outstanding education is the entitlement of all in this area of North East Somerset. We hope, through our combined efforts, that all our children will have high aspirations and lead fulfilling lives.
