In the words of the immortal bard, Willaim Shakespeare himself:
That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet
or as Gertrude Stein once put it, 'A rose is a rose is a rose' ...
Which is all to say, St Anthony's is changing its name. After 5 years of excellence under the Teaching School's banner, St Anthony's is shortly to become St Anthony's Primary Learning Partnership!
As the government begins a major examination and alteration to the way support and training is delivered, as always St Anthony's finds itself at the forefront of change and development. Exciting changes are ahead, more of which will be announced at a later date.
In the meantime, to use another well-known phrase, 'every journey begins with a single step' and so, as the beginning of our exciting new journey, we will be adopting our new name. Over the next few weeks, we will be making changes to the website (so apologies if names don't always match up), rebranding our countless outstanding activities whilst continuing to deliver the maximum levels of high-quality support and training.
So, the main thing to take away is the idea as offered by Romeo, that although your call it something else, the rose (or the training provider) stays the same. Therefore, whatever changes and challenges come our way, the partnership comprising of all our excellent partners will be the same, forward-thinking, proactive, outstanding alliance. An no matter what shape or form our delivery comes in, we will do our utmost to continue to deliver the same outstanding mixture of support and training throughout the region.
