Springline Partnership of Schools
SPS stands for the Springline Partnership of Schools.
We are part of this partnership who are committed to 'collaboration, challenge, improvement and support.' The other seven schools in this partnership are: Fitzwaryn Special School, Grove CE Primary, Ridgeway School, St Amands Catholic Primary, Stockham Primary, The Hendreds CE Primary and Wantage Primary Academy.
The reason behind 'Springline' is because Wantage stands on the spring line between the chalk downs to the south and the clay Thames flood plain to the north on a prehistoric east - west route called the Icknield Way.
'Spring' also relates to new beginnings and new life.
As a partnership we work together as Headteachers, Senior Leaders, Teachers, SENCos, Teaching Assistants and Office staff. We create partnership opportunities for the children and staff from our various schools to work together and learn from each other or outside experts.
