Willows Academy Trust

Willows Academy Trust 




Shardlow Primary converted to an Academy with 3 other schools in November 2014 after consultation and became part of the Willows Academy Trust. 


In Sept 2017 we restructured our multi-academy trust and appointed a Chief Executive (Jeannie Haigh) who is leading us on the next stage of our journey.  



The 4 schools in the Trust are:

Shardlow Primary School

Sawley Infant School

Sawley Junior School

Dovedale Primary School


We are schools with individual identities who are committed to working in a collaborative way to ensure the very best for our pupils, staff and school communities.
