New school joins growing Owlcotes Multi-Academy Trust


West Leeds-based Owlcotes Multi-Academy Trust has officially welcomed its latest new member – Spring Bank Primary School in Headingley.

Spring Bank is an inclusive school which is led by the head of school, Jordan License, and executive headteacher, Jonathan Parker.

With just over 170 pupils across seven classes, Spring Bank Primary School is the sixth primary school to join the Owlcotes Multi-Academy Trust, joining Pudsey Primrose Hill Primary School, Pudsey Waterloo Primary School, Calverley Parkside Primary School, Armley Park Primary School, and Manor Wood Primary School in Moortown.

Rachel Muers, chair of governors, said: “We are very pleased to be joining the Owlcotes Multi-Academy Trust. We believe that Owlcotes’ values as a Trust align with our own values as a school community, and we really appreciate Owlcotes’ commitment to working collaboratively and to putting the children at the heart of everything we do. We’re excited about the next steps in the school’s journey.”

Lesley West, CEO of the Owlcotes Multi-Academy Trust, said: “Spring Bank Primary School is a fantastic school with a commitment to achieving the best for its pupils and the school community. We are so pleased to welcome them to the Owlcotes family. Owlcotes was founded back in 2018 with a genuine desire to provide excellent education for pupils. I have no doubt that Spring Bank will fit in perfectly and be a valuable addition to our family of schools”.

Owlcotes Multi-Academy Trust was established in March 2018 by its two founding primary schools, Pudsey Primrose Hill Primary School and Pudsey Waterloo Primary School, with the aim of developing a collaborative approach to school improvement, and a commitment to working closely with all schools in the trust.
