Eko Trust

On 1st November 2016 we formalised our great working partnership with Kazien Primary School and Eleanor Smith School by forming the Eko Multi-Academy Trust. Each Head Teacher is proud to be a founding schools and our strength is the collaboration which supports our pursuit of excellence for our children and young people. Eko means learning in Yoruba, and the journey to enlightenment in Buddhism.
