Proposal to Change Academy Name

After careful consideration the Board of Trustees of The Mead Educational Trust have agreed to change the name of Hamilton Academy and are proposing to change the name to Orchard Mead Academy from 28th August 2019.

The proposed name will explicitly reflect the Academy’s link with The Mead Educational Trust and its family of academies, especially Rushey Mead Academy.

The change of name will not affect the way in which the academy is run. The Academy will remain committed to working together to make a positive difference and continue to improve the life chances of its children and young people through high aspirations and challenge.

We would like to take this opportunity to assure Hamilton Academy parents that students Year 8, 9, 10 and 11 will be able to continue wearing their existing Hamilton Academy uniforms for the academic year 2019/20.  The new cohort of Year 7 students starting in 2019/20 will be required to purchase new uniforms, which will be available from Hamilton Academy’s uniform supplier.

The consultation runs from Monday 25th February 2019 to Friday 29th March 2019.

Questions or comments can be made in writing to Charlotte Johnston, The Mead Centre, 343 Gipsy Lane, Leicester, LE4 9DD or by email to [email protected].
