Honiton Community College joins The Ted Wragg family of schools

This week marks an exciting new chapter for Honiton Community College as they join the ambitious and inclusive Ted Wragg Trust.

Honiton Community College (HCC), a secondary school in the centre of Honiton with students from 11-18, has become the 15th school to join the growing Trust whose mission is to transform lives and strengthen communities to make the world a better place.

Honiton Community College, which has a roll of 728 students and employs 96 staff members, believes in the core values of ‘Kindness, Curiosity and Resilience’ and provides a challenging learning journey, within a supportive setting. They believe every child has the right to an excellent education, in a calm and caring environment and staff work collaboratively with students and families to achieve ‘Success for All’.

By joining the Trust, the school will be supported with its ambition to help students to achieve their goals and aspirations and to leave College as confident, ambitious and successful young people, keen to engage with the world of tomorrow and live a life of opportunity.  

Chris Meek, Chair of Governors and parent of children at Honiton Community Colleges comments “Honiton Community College are delighted to join the Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust, as this union aligns perfectly with our college's vision of 'Success for All.' Together, we will continue our commitment to a pupil-centred approach, ensuring that each student's unique abilities and aspirations are nurtured and celebrated. By joining this ambitious and inclusive Trust, we have an unprecedented opportunity to strengthen our communities through excellent education, enriching the lives of countless young learners. We look forward to the exciting possibilities that lie ahead.”

Alex Kirkbride, Principal at Honiton Community College comments, “I am incredibly proud and excited to have Honiton Community College join the Ted Wragg Trust from the 1st July. This represents a significant and positive step forward for our staff, students, and families. Whilst there will be little day to day change to the family and student experience at Honiton, all will benefit from the additional expertise and capacity that the Trust will offer, further accelerating our school improvement journey.”

Moira Marder, Chief Executive Officer of the Ted Wragg Trust, said: “With community at the heart of all we do, we are thrilled to be welcoming Honiton Community College to our family of schools who want the very best for all our children because every child deserves the very best opportunity to succeed. This will be a truly transformative partnership between the college and the Trust that share the same values and through working together will continue on our exciting journeys to being the very best we can.”

Honiton Community College officially joined the Ted Wragg Trust on Saturday 1st July 2023.
