GANF converts to a Multi Academy Trust


As from today, September 1st 2014, both Ambergate Sports College and Sandon School have become Academies and will now form part of the new Multi Academy Trust:

The Community Inclusive Trust (CIT)

CIT - Where Learning Comes First - final version

This means that Ambergate and Sandon are now essentially independent schools that are funded directly from central government. 

Being free of local authority will enable us to have more freedom on how we conduct ourselves and we will be able to undertake more innovative projects to suit our schools and our pupils.

We do not intend to change GANF except in ways which we think will improve the schools even more. For students, it is unlikely that they will see much, if any, change in their day to day school lives apart from more opportunities becoming available.
