Governance at Inspire Trust

Inspire Trust is a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) established in July 2014 which includes Oakwood High School, Sitwell Junior School and Thomas Rotherham College.  (Click here to visit the Sitwell Junior School website and here to visit the Thomas Rotherham College website). The MAT was formed on the basis of long standing close working relationships within our Learning Community.
