We are pleased to announce that the Regional Schools Commissioner has approved the proposal for a merger between Q3 Academies Trust and The Mercian Trust.
RSC staff have worked with staff from both trusts this term, and confirmed that the skills, knowledge, and capacity are in place to complete the merger, and that both trusts will be in a stronger position as a result of the merger.
We anticipate that the merger will be formally completed within this current academic year. The merger will not affect Business Dress or the Academy name. We can also confirm that start and end times of the Academy day will remain the same.
Mercian and Q3 Academies have begun working more closely together this year to provide quality assurance and support, and we are already seeing the positive impact of this.
We truly believe that students and staff will benefit from being part of a larger family of academies, and we are committed to working together to increase opportunities and improve outcomes for students in our area.
