Archer Academy and Woodhouse College will now be working together on a range of areas, including governance, staff training, resource sharing and curriculum development.

The partnership also means that any Archer Academy students who meet the expected criteria for their courses will be given priority admission to Year 12 at Woodhouse College.

Archer Academy headteacher Lucy Harrison said: “I am thrilled to be entering into a strong, long-term partnership with Woodhouse College, an outstanding sixth form college which shares our vision for success and our ambitious, supportive approach to education and personal growth.”

Woodhouse College principal John Rubinstein said: “I am delighted to be starting this partnership. I have been following the development of the school with great interest and am hugely impressed with what I have seen of the energy and innovation of both students and staff.”
