This letter follows the inspections of 6 of the academies in the Trust during November 2016.

Inspectors found that student achievement has not improved quickly enough. The achievement of disadvantaged students in their secondary academies in 2015 is deeply concerning.

Inspectors call on the Trust to urgently improve student achievement, particularly in secondary academies.
