Tone Valley Partnership

In 2016 the Headteachers and Chairs of the Governing Bodies at Kingsmead School and local Primary Schools for Cotford St Luke, Milverton, Lydeard St Lawrence, Oake Bradford & Nynehead and Wiveliscombe signed a charter of collaboration between the schools as part of The Tone Valley Partnership (TVP).

"Our joint vision is to provide the best possible and most rewarding education for all children as they progress through our schools.  This will improve their life chances by delivering improved results, greater security and broader horizons for all children within the partnership through strong collaboration and commitment to joint endeavour."
