A unique partnership

SASH EDUCATION TRUST

The school was established through a unique and innovative partnership involving the Slough Association of Secondary Headteachers with support from local primary schools. This has involved all secondary school, be they community, foundation, grammar, voluntary aided, special schools or academies. They came together to form the SASH Education Trust.

The SASH partnership provides the basis for the delivery of a vibrant education for local pupils. Grove Academy is at the centre of the strategy to ensure there is the widest possible curriculum choice provided to the young people of Slough. We will be at the forefront of the development of a collaborative approach to learning across the town.
