We are delighted to announce that XTND have been commissioned to work with the Weston Super Mare Education Trust – This means that we will be working with the five schools that make up the Trust (Windwhistle, Bournville, Old Mixon, Walliscote and Milton Park) to develop projects and partnerships across the schools and the wider community.

We are busy planning a celebration event to be held in June so stay tuned for more information coming soon!
