Our Trust

The Odyssey Collaborative Trust

Portway Junior School is part of The Odyssey Collaborative Trust, which is a network of 7 individual primary schools located in Derby.  Being part of the Trust provides opportunities beyond our school. Children have the chance to work with and compete against children from a diverse range of schools. Through Trust events and training, staff members collaborate and acquire new skills and ideas which can then be developed within their own school. This is a real benefit is being part of an organisation that is larger, forward thinking and forward facing.
