Information Evening Presentation

Through unity there is strength

Through recent times, the strength, resilience and humanity that can be achieved through cooperation and unity has been exemplified in so many ways, from the exceptional way that our staff and young people have weathered the storm of the pandemic to their extraordinary achievements in it’s wake and the unifying event that has been the Queen’s platinum jubilee. The Unity Schools Partnership’s 2022 summer arts festival celebrates this sense of unity and the creativity of the young people across our partnership.

Celebrate with us and look at the incredible work our students from across the trust have created and been a part of from the padlet below.
