About Ninestiles Academy Trust
Celebrate Trust and School Achievements
The Ninestiles Academy Trust currently comprises seven schools, in Birmingham and Solihull. Ninestiles School is the lead school in the Multi Academy Trust. Erdington Hall Primary School became a member of the trust in June 2012, The Oaklands Primary School, Pegasus Primary School and Yarnfield Primary School all joined in 2013 and Lyndon Secondary School joined the trust in 2015. Cockshut Hill School joined the Trust in Autumn 2016. All academies are at varying stages of development and improvement:
Ninestiles Academy judged to be an outstanding school in 2013.
Lyndon School was judged to have serious weaknesses in 2013 and HMI monitoring visits indicated reasonable progress was being made toward the removal of the serious weakness designation. The school joined Ninestiles Trust on 1st September 2015 and, thus, is now a school without formal OfSTED designation.
Cockshut Hill School has moved from a judgement of special measures (2013) to a judgement of requires improvement (2015). Judgements of good were made about the effectiveness of leadership and management and the 16-19 curriculum.
The Trust is recognised as a strong example of how the system can be led by academies working in collaboration with others, a premise at the heart of education policy and practice. The Trust is open to growth in a carefully planned and sustainable way and Trustees are currently in discussion with Solihull Sixth Form College about merger into the Trust. Discussions about the merger should be complete, in principle, by early December this year.
The Trust is financially sound and Trustees have a thorough understanding of the consolidated and individual academy operating costs. Income, expenditure and capital are carefully managed by a dedicated and experienced team so the Chief Executive will be well apprised of the operating model and financial arrangements. Student numbers are secure and rising, with over 5300 students across the Trust and a consolidated budget in the region of c£30M.
