ATLP welcomes Lichfield’s Nether Stowe School

The Arthur Terry Learning Partnership (ATLP) is pleased to announce that Lichfield’s Nether Stowe School is now officially part of its growing family of academies.

This is the fourth Staffordshire school to join the respected multi-academy trust, which also connects academies in Birmingham and North Warwickshire. ATLP’s partnership now includes eight primary schools, four secondary schools and one national teaching school.

Nether Stowe has been working with the ATLP for a number of months prior to the official partnership. Headteacher Glyn Langston-Jones is looking forward to the next stage in the secondary school’s future.

He said:

Nether Stowe is absolutely thrilled to be part of the ATLP. This is the start of a new era for the school and we’re excited to be working with a partnership that shares our high ideals, core ethos and boundless ambition to achieve excellence for all. I’m very fortunate to be part of Nether Stowe’s supportive learning community, who inspire us to achieve more for our children and young people. By working with a family of academies with a strong record for continuous school improvement, we can create even more opportunities for our students to excel.”

ATLP CEO and newly appointed chair of the Teaching Schools Council, Richard Gill, said:

I’m delighted to welcome Nether Stowe to the ATLP. The school is in the heart of my home city and I’m proud and privileged to be working with Glyn and his brilliant team. The ATLP believes that every child has the right to be a powerful learner. We’re committed to raising standards collectively through strong collaboration, teamwork and mutual support. Together we can ensure excellence across schools and I look forward to extending those opportunities to our new family member – Nether Stowe.”

The Arthur Terry Learning Partnership is based in Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield. The multi-academy trust expanded into Staffordshire in 2018 and Nether Stowe joins Lichfield’s Scotch Orchard Primary school and Tamworth’s Two Gates and William MacGregor primary schools.

Richard Gill, who was raised and lives in Lichfield, has been involved in education across Staffordshire for much of his distinguished career in education, having held senior leadership and headteacher positions at several schools.
