ANOTHER Oxfordshire primary school has converted to become an academy.

Stadhampton Primary School near Chalgrove lodged an official application to convert to become an academy, meaning it will now be run by a multi-academy trust rather than Oxfordshire County Council.

The form appeared on Ofsted's website on Friday and states that the school has joined the Acer Trust, which runs four other schools including Matthew Arnold School in Botley.

A post on the school's blog said this is an 'exciting time of change' and staff are 'very pleased' to now have the trust's support.
