We are thrilled to extend a warm welcome to The Grange School, based in Daventry, the newest addition to our E-ACT family.

We are now officially a MAT of 29 academies!


The arrival of The Grange School means we proudly have three academies in the Daventry area. E-ACT DSLV Academy and E-ACT Parker Academy are secondary academies based in Daventry. Having another academy joining our Daventry hub strengthens the offering we can give to our pupils by working collectively and offering outstanding education from nursery all the way through to sixth form.

Although The Grange School’s official start date is now, we already feel that they have been part of our trust for a while. We have enjoyed working with our Grange colleagues over the past few months in our assurance boards, leadership conference and other training opportunities.

We can already see that the school has strong leadership with Vicki Masters as Headteacher. The Grange School has a strong vision of fostering an environment where every child is encouraged to dream, believe and achieve. These are values that resonate with us at E-ACT, we are looking forward to building on the strong commitment to work closely with the communities served by the school and to ensure all children receive a fantastic education.

“We are delighted and proud to be part of a forward-thinking trust. I am very much looking forward to collaborating at a national level with fellow E-ACT academies to ensure our pupils continue to thrive and excel.”

“Everyone at E-ACT is delighted to welcome The Grange and Mrs Masters on board and we are looking forward to getting to know our new pupils, parents, colleagues and governors better.

It’s clear what an asset to the school Mrs Masters is and how beneficial her continued strong leadership will be to the children there.”

Tom Campbell, CEO at E-ACT

As we embark on this exciting new chapter together, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to all who have contributed to making The Grange School a reality. Together, let us work hand in hand to ensure that every child who walks through our doors has the opportunity to dream, believe, and achieve.
