West Thornton Primary School is part of Inspire Partnership, a small multi-academy trust working in Greenwich , Medway and Croydon to transform students’ lives.
As a partnership of schools we are better able to support our students, we strongly believe in the power of collaboration and continually work together to find innovative ways of working.
Our partnership of schools is Elaine, Foxfield, Maundene, Rockliffe Manor, Woodhill, Delce, Forest, Woodside andf West Thornton. Our schools all have their own identity and are separate schools however we work together to have similar visions and values and continually collaborate behind the scenes to help us benchmark our standards and work together to improve the teaching and learning for all our children. Our partnership is led by CEO Rob Carpenter who works across all our schools supporting our school based headteachers and a central team of executive leaders and central office staff who are deployed to work across all schools within our MAT.
Working in partnership, sharing practice and showcasing outstanding teaching and learning helps us raise our expectations and continually look for ways we can improve. We know we are stronger together and enables us to offer the very best to the students and staff of our schools.
