Joint leadership for two Berkhamsted schools?

Share this article

A pair of Berkhamsted church schools could deepen their links by merging with a single governing body.

Victoria Infant & Nursery School and The Thomas 
Coram School already have a joint executive headteacher.

Now parents, staff, pupils and the local community are being asked for their thoughts on becoming the Castle Church of England Federation.

Executive headteacher 
Rob Halls said: “Our two Christian school families have always worked closely together, but by formalising this collaboration within a federation, we’re able to fully integrate teaching and 
learning experiences and 
pool resources – putting all our energies into making sure each individual pupil achieves their full potential.”

Under the proposal both schools will still operate from their existing sites and keep their separate names and 
uniforms.

It is a priority for both schools to continue the close working relationship with the other neighbouring school, Swing Gate Infant and 
Nursery School. The consultation will run until February 16.
