Combe Down Primary is now an Academy!
The school has received its academy order and as of today (1st July 2016) we are now an academy and part of a multi academy trust, the Palladian Academy Trust (PAT). This means we are no longer a local authority school although we will continue to work with B&NES in lots of areas.
We are the first of seven primary, infant and junior schools to join Ralph Allen School in the PAT. The other schools are due to convert over the next few months so that by Christmas we will have all eight schools in the Trust. Don’t expect to see any major changes to what we already do in the first instance but we do anticipate that over time we shall be working more closely together to strengthen our schools and look to further improve the education that we provide for your children.
