Conditions of Purchase

Kingfisher and Fitzwaryn special schools together with Abingdon and Witney College have established a formal relationship through the creation of a multi-academy trust. The Propeller Academy Trust will provide outstanding provision from the age of 3 to 25 for children and young adults with special educational needs. It will provide a formal and supportive partnership whilst allowing all partners to maintain their independent and autonomous status, ethos and culture.

The vision for the trust is that, through the creation of a formal partnership, two special schools and a college of FE will make available exceptional, responsive and highly specialised provision to children and young adults with special educational needs, including those with highly complex and/or profound learning difficulties across south and west Oxfordshire. The provision will be highly regarded both locally and nationally and will build on the strengths of the partner organisations who are already judged to be outstanding. The creation of The Propeller Academy Trust will enable the three partners to extend and develop the range of provision that they offer; establish an innovative and developmental curriculum that is built around the needs of the individual child or young adult; enable best practice to become the norm across the Trust partners; and provide exceptional opportunities for staff to progress and develop.
