Advance Trust

Vale of Evesham School, a generic, all age special, converted to academy status on 1 April 2013, using the multi-academy Trust model, registered company name is Advance Trust. In 2014 a fast track sponsorship program was undertaken and expanded the Trust to include Riversides School (SEMH), Kingfisher School (SEMH) and Newbridge Short Stay Secondary School. Advance Trust was formed to deliver outstanding educational opportunities to a large proportion of pupils from Worcestershire requiring specialist educational provision. This pioneering MAT concept has meant that the schools can learn from each other's best practice, share staff development and resources, and create innovative solutions to the growing demands placed on today's educational establishments.
