The Trust, which runs schools across Ealing including Twyford CofE High School, William Perkin CofE High School, Ealing Fields High School and Ada Lovelace CofE High School has been selected as the subject lead for English secondary curriculum to develop and produce resources for pupils in Years 7 – 11.
Oak National Academy was set up in April 2020 as a response to the then coronavirus outbreak with the objective to provide free online lessons for all. It has since become the new national body supporting curriculum.
According to the Trust, the results of its multi-academy trust (MAT) Progress 8 Score of 0.93 (showing how much progress pupils made across 8 qualifications between the end of Key Stage 2 and the end of Key Stage 4, compared to other similar pupils nationally) made it the
highest scoring multi-academy trust in the country which was key in being chosen.
Overall, the results achieved in English at William Perkin CofE High School and Ealing Fields High School were among the best in the country.
Matt Hood, chief executive of Oak National Academy, said: “Oak’s new curriculum partners will draw from and share with the sector their deep expertise whilst developing high quality curriculum resources for tens of thousands of teachers into the future.”
Dame Alice Hudson, executive headteacher of Twyford CofE Academies Trust said: “Our English curriculum is built on a firm foundation of the most up to date research into reading and our commitment to make it accessible to all students. We are delighted to be partnering with Oak on this new venture which builds on the ambition of our talented staff and success of our students.”
