As of the 1st of April 2018 our two schools became the The Whiteoak Acadamies of Hannah More Infants and Grove Juniors and have become part of the Lighthouse Schools Partnership Multi Academy Trust. We are currently building a new Website to reflect this new chapter in both schools journeys. Please bear with over the next couple months as we get ready to launch our new site.
Welcome to the Whiteoak Academies of Hannah More Infants and Grove Juniors
Hannah More Infant and Grove Junior schools share the same site and have worked closely together for many years. The 1st March 2012 was a historic date marking the start of the formal partnership of the schools. Hannah More started her first Sunday School in the nearby Tithe Barn in 1791 thereby providing the foundation for both schools. Hannah More wished to serve the local community in order “to benefit the Parish of Nailsea in its most important interest – the education of the rising generations” and this lives on 220 years later in the strong partnership established through the federation.
I am delighted and privileged to be Executive Headteacher of the Academies. In both our schools we have enthusiastic pupils, talented staff, committed governors and supportive parents. We recognise that school days are such an important time for both children and their families and we always aim to ensure that every child feels happy, safe, secure and confident in their school life and is well equipped for the next stage of their education.
For our current families the site is a useful way of catching up with the latest information and for prospective families we hope the site will provide you with an overview and a means by which to contact us – we look forward to hearing from you.
On behalf of all our pupils, staff and governors I warmly welcome you to our school.
Kay Church Executive Headteacher
