An educational trust is welcoming another South Leicestershire school on board as it continues to grow.

South Kilworth CE Primary School is joining Lubenham-based Learn Academies Trust (Learn-AT) – becoming its 11th member.

Learn-AT's schools are made up of a mix of Church of England and Community Academies.

They work closely together to share expertise and support each other to provide education for primary school children in the Harborough, Blaby and Narborough areas of South Leicestershire.

South Kilworth C of E Primary School is rated Good by national schools’ watchdog Ofsted.

It is a traditional village school with thriving children in a happy family atmosphere, said the trust.

The school is set in beautiful grounds just 10 minutes’ drive from Lutterworth.

Oliver Johnson, South Kilworth’s chair of governors, said: “Learn-AT is an ideal home for South Kilworth.

“From the first meeting we could see that goals, priorities and attitudes were the same.”

He added: “They were very well organised, local and growing.

“And they included other high-performing schools that were very similar to South Kilworth, three of them nearby.

“This collaboration will benefit all of the four schools by working together and combining the advantages of traditional village schools with the resources and professionalism of a very capable academy trust.”

Stef Edwards, Learn-AT’s Trust Leader, said: “It’s very exciting to welcome everyone at South Kilworth to the Learn-AT community of schools.

“We are all looking forward to working and learning together, in fellowship, in the service of children and families.”
