Dave Nicoll, Chair of the Killigrew Governing Body was delighted to make the announcement on behalf of the Killigrew Partnership stating, “The Governors of the Killigrew Partnership unanimously approved the formation of a multi academy trust with Falmouth School. This formal partnership will allow us to build on the existing joint working that takes place between our three schools and this local approach can only enhance the education provision in our community of Falmouth”.
