Marine Academy Primary opened in September 2013 and was the first free school in the south west to be rated ‘Outstanding’ in every category by Ofsted, in June 2015. The school is the first ‘marine’ primary school and is also part of Marine Academy Plymouth, offering the first all-through school in Plymouth. The school is sponsored by Plymouth University, Cornwall College and Plymouth City Council.
The visit is a fantastic opportunity to see an open free school in action. There will also be the opportunity to meet with the primary school head, Siobhan Meredith, secondary school head, Nick Ward, teachers at the school and the Chair of Governors, Vikki Matthews. The day is also a chance for you to meet other leaders from free schools.
This half day event, which is completely free to attend, will include a tour of the school, lunch, networking and the opportunity to share best practice.
A small number of places are available for the visit, which we expected to be in high demand.
