Hinckley Academy Joins The Futures Trust with Substantial DfE Investment
The Futures Trust is delighted to announce that Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form College became part The Futures Trust from 1st December.
The academy’s move to The Futures Trust has been brokered with substantial additional Department of Education capital funding to support remodelling and improvements of the site at Hinckley Academy. In addition to these improvements, the trust has also secured a DfE commitment to the provision of a brand-new classroom block providing 3220m² of state of the art teaching space.
Peter Thomas, CEO of The Futures Trust commented, “I am delighted that Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form College is joining our family of schools. My own children attended the school, and I am very familiar with the local community together with its needs and expectations.”
Ms Azizah Pathan, Head of School at Hinckley Academy said, " This is a very exciting time for our school and having worked closely with The Futures Trust over the last year or so we are confident that this will bring huge benefits to our students, our staff and our community."
Dr Luke Evans, Member of Parliament for Bosworth, added “This is a huge step for the future of Hinckley Academy, and more importantly for the generations of children who will benefit from both the leadership of The Futures Trust, but also from the significant investment that is being made in the fabric of the school which will see state of the art facilities being built.
“This is wonderful news for Hinckley residents, I’m delighted to have played a role in bringing this day to reality and can’t wait to see how the school develops under the guidance of the The Futures Trust in the coming years.”
The trust is passionate about seeking to raise the horizons and ambitions of students attending Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form College in order that they achieve the best possible chance in life. The trust is committed to making a difference to their lives, and in the most profound sense, through their own ability to make a difference to themselves and others.
The Futures Trust’s team of education experts have been working with the academy for some time to fully appreciate the school’s unique qualities and needs. As time progresses, the trust will continue to provide updates on a range of exciting developments that are already in the pipeline.
