Astrea was established in 2015 (previously called Reach4 Academy Trust), with a view to working with primary, secondary and all-through schools in the South Yorkshire region. Astrea is led by Libby Nicholas, an outstanding Head and experienced national education leader.
Astrea has the highest expectations when it comes to academic results, but the Trust’s aspirations go well beyond the concept of ‘schooling’.
Designate CEO, Libby Nicholas said:
“We are absolutely delighted that Greengate Lane Primary Academy is joining the Astrea family. We have been working closely with with the school for some time and look forward to building on the strong foundations in place.
“At Astrea, we passionately believe in ‘inspiration beyond measure’ and are committed to delivering an education with no boundaries. For us, that means not just academic excellence, but helping children and young people develop in the broadest sense through arts, sports, leadership opportunities, enrichment and community.
“We look forward to welcoming Greengate Lane Primary Academy into the Astrea family and, together, working to ensure that every child has the best possible education throughout their time with us.”
