A message from the CEO

Dear Parent / Carer

As you are aware Farnborough Academy is part of the Trent Academies Group. I was originally the Head Teacher at Rushcliffe School and became the CEO of the Trent Academies Group when Rushcliffe started to work closely with Farnborough in 2014. It was then joined by Arnold Hill in 2015. I have very much enjoyed overseeing the work of the three academies and believe each has improved significantly over the last three years. I have, however, decided that it is time to retire from the CEO role. I became a Head Teacher in 2000 and have enjoyed the experience enormously. I hope I have made a difference. There are, however, other things that I would like to do and I will retire from school leadership at the end of the academic year.

I know each academy is well led by capable Head Teachers. The Board, which oversees the Trust, is informed and committed. The three academies are well positioned to provide an excellent service in the coming years and I will, of course, work closely with the Board to ensure the succession is managed in the interests of the young people in our communities.

Best wishes

P T Crompton

Statement from Trent Academies Group Board

We are sorry to have to inform you that Mr Crompton has decided that he wishes to retire from his position as CEO of Trent Academies Group at the end of August 2018. The Board respects Mr Crompton’s decision and has reluctantly accepted his resignation.

We are very grateful to Mr Crompton for all he has done for Rushcliffe, Farnborough and Arnold Hill. Under his stewardship Mr Crompton will leave each academy in a stronger position than when he first became involved.

Mr Crompton’s career as a Head Teacher has brought real positive change to many students and the schools and the academies he has led. He became a Head teacher in 2000 and since then has led one school from the point of closure to Ofsted ‘good’, has taken over a school that was in ‘special measures’ and left when it was ‘good with outstanding features’ prior to leading Rushcliffe to ‘outstanding’ in 2014.

Mr Crompton’s planned departure will have no impact on the work of the Trust or our academies and he will remain engaged in his work as CEO over the coming months. The Board will be taking time to plan the right succession for Mr Crompton in conjunction with our ongoing work to look at the right options to secure further improvement for our schools in 2018 and beyond.

Thank you for your support.

Andrew Pickin (Chair of Trent Academies Group)

A message from Mr B Chaloner

I have worked with Phil Crompton since 2010 across three different secondary schools. In each school he has shown commitment and desire to provide the best education possible for its young people - he inspires those around him. I know that you will join me in thanking him for his passion to improve Farnborough and we wish him well in his retirement.

Thank you

Ben Chaloner (Head Teacher)

The Farnborough Academy Pupil Leadership Team With Chris Cohen

Student Leadership Conference

Rugby

Tuesday 14 November 2017 - The Farnborough Academy Key Stage 4 Rugby team went to the Melish Rugby Club to play in the County Cup which we won last season. 

There were some really good performances from the Farnborough team. England Rugby Union representatives spoke of Liam Chambers and Ardena Wendsa playing really well and asked which clubs they played for and recommended they went to the NLD Squad which is a great thing for the 2 students.

 Thursday 23 November 2017 - the Key Stage 3 Girls Rugby Team from The Farnborough Academy are going to Arnold Hill Academy for a training session. Both schools are teaming up so they can play matches for the first time and both schools can put out a Girls Rugby team.

 We are looking at dates for Key Stage 4 TAG Rugby trials which are a first for everybody and also looking at Leicester Tigers coming in again for another coaching day which was a great success last year.
