Milton Keynes Education Trust is delighted to welcome Heronsgate School as a converter academy. The addition of Heronsgate School further strengthens the primary expertise within the Trust. Other benefits include the opportunity to offer a wider range of enriched educational opportunities. Closer links with Walton High will also ensure great continuity for the children who transfer to the school in Year 7. This enhanced partnership also means more sharing of support services that will result in cost savings. In this way the Trust will be able to ensure the maximum amount of funding is spent directly on the things that have the greatest impact on the achievements of children and young people.
