New School Plans

Expansion Plans

The GLA carefully considers ways to expand the organisation in order to achieve a long-term sustainable partnership model for the MAT and to enable more children to benefit from our ambitious vision for education. Expansion is not an end in itself. We remain committed to being a local trust to benefit local children in Gloucestershire.

 Longford Park Primary Academy

The GLA were selected as sponsors to open and run a new academy in Longford. Plans are underway to open Longford Park Primary Academy in September 2017. The aim is to open a nursery, pre-school and one-form entry school. For more details click here:

During 2016 we consulted with local residents, potential stakeholders, community, education and business groups on the following:

  • School vision & ethos
  • Curriculum plan and priorities – what makes this school distinctive and unique?
  • Admissions
  • Travel plan & access
  • Proposed links with local community

During 2017 we completed part two of the Section 10 Consultation asking stakeholders whether the Secretary of State for Education should enter into a funding agreement with the Gloucestershire Learning Alliance.
