Schools Partnership Week

Date Posted: Monday 27 November 2023

It’s the Independent Schools Council Partnership Week, a week celebrating cooperation between independent and state schools. Did you know that New Hall School sponsors local Messing Primary School, through our Multi-Academy Trust. The sponsorship was the first of its kind, after New Hall was invited by the Department for Education and the Governing Body of Messing Primary School to become the first independent school in the country to sponsor a state primary school.

A rural village school, Messing has been operating since 1914, serving the villages of Messing, Inworth and the wider community.

How does this sponsorship work? Scroll through the gallery below to see some of the ways in which New Hall School supports Messing and its pupils.
