Federation of Claremont and Kingsweston Schools
During the academic year 2022-2023, both Governing Bodies of Claremont and Kingsweston Schools explored the merit of sharing governance of our schools. A consultation on proposals was undertaken throughout Term 2 with parents and staff.
Both Governing Bodies met on Tuesday 10 January 2023 to decide on the way forward. A background paper (please see here) reporting on the consultation and presenting points to inform our decision was carefully considered.
Claremont School Governing Body and Kingsweston School Governing Body independently made a unanimous decision that it was in the best interests of the schools to federate governance and senior staffing. The federation came into effect on 1 February 2023.
In the federation there is one Governing Body to oversee both schools, defining strategy, monitoring outcomes and being financially accountable.
Each school continues to operate separately, retaining their name and separate identity. Senior leadership is shared across the two schools.
