Interim Executive Board
The Interim Executive Board (IEB) was set up following the departure of the Headteacher and Governing Body in June 2023. The IEB is in place to support the transition from a local authority school to one sponsored by an academy trust.
At present, the IEB is made up of four board members, each selected for their skills and experience.
Angela Scattergood (Director of Education, Lewisham Council);
Anthony Doudle, Head of Lewisham Learning, Lewisham Council);
Helen Clarke (Director of Communications and Engagement, Lewisham Council)
The creation of the IEB means that the school’s governance model has changed, and therefore the previous governing board is no longer in place. We would like to thank all governors for their hard work.
United Learning Trust
The Department for Education confirmed in September 2023 that is has appointed United Learning Trust as the academy sponsor for Conisborough College. United Learning Trust has experience of leading schools, including in Lewisham – they have sponsored Sedgehill Academy for six years. During this time Sedgehill has remained firmly part of the Lewisham family of schools and works positively and closely with the Council and other local schools.
Work is now underway to prepare for United Learning Trust to begin their sponsorship of the school – this will include confirming a date for when they will formally take up their leadership of Conisborough College.
United Learning Trust has written to parents and held a meeting in October. The Trust has committed to keeping parents updated of progress throughout this process and is currently spending time at the College, working with senior leaders to ensure a smooth transition.
