Greywood Multi-Schools Trust

The Friary School is proud to have been one of the founding schools of the Greywood Multi-Schools Trust and committed to this body to establish an academy trust which stood out from the crowd.

A Trust where schools could retain their individual flavour and identity but were jointly committed to ensuring that all children thriving was the absolute focus every step of the way.

Certainly, the Greywood Multi-Schools Trust aims to bring together a group of schools with a shared vision to develop a learning community that brings real benefits to students, staff, parents and the wider community. It is determined to achieve this change not just through the transactional benefits of academisation, but through a deep and genuine sharing of learning and best practice.

The Greywood emblem reflects the history of our region, but also represents our key objective of benefitting from a central trunk which forms the basis for school growth, as well as individual branches which enable member schools to retain their own distinct culture and direction.

Initially, the schools involved are in or around the Lichfield and Rugeley Districts and come from the primary, secondary and special sectors. The Trust intends to be highly inclusive and offers a potential educational route from age 2, when the youngest children enter primary school, to 25, with extended special school provision.
