The schools in the Trust have a long history of working together – those living and working in the area may well remember SKILL – the South Kerrier Initiative for Linking Learning. Through this schools worked together to provide sporting opportunities and joint curriculum initiatives.
In 2012 the schools joined together to form the Helston and Lizard Peninsula Education Trust, a Co‑operative Foundation Trust. This work led to an even closer working relationship with some shared procurement via a Trust Business Manager, shared data, school to school reviews and training events. The next step for us to was to ensure the longevity of this relationship and to deepen its effectiveness.
