Linden Bridge School

The LIFT Partnership


The Governing Body of Linden Bridge took the decision to join the LIFT Partnership (Learning & Inspiration for Tomorrow), a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) created by Linden Bridge and West Hill. The schools transferred to Academy status on October 1st 2017. The governors were convinced that joining West Hill in this new venture was very positive for all stakeholders at Linden Bridge. This newly formed Trust has ambitions to grow and to be an influential provider of education to children with special educational needs. It will give us the best opportunity to invest in the school’s improvement and provide the resources and services that our staff and young people need. There will be more opportunities for the teaching staff to share expertise and satisfy career aspirations. Most important of all, given the challenges facing Surrey and the funding of special education, governors believe the MAT will secure the best outcomes for Linden Bridge's pupils. Our MAT has been granted the opportunity to open a new school in Surrey, which will provide a similar education service to Linden Bridge. So there will be opportunity in future to provide an outstanding education to a greater number of children with autism in the region.  The school’s leadership team and governing body will continue to run the academy on a day-to-day basis, with oversight by the Trust Board. The move to create the MAT is about the long-term future-proofing of the outstanding education we provide at Linden Bridge.
