 “I am thrilled to be appointed as Head of School of Crown Street Primary School and looking forward to meeting families of prospective pupils, as we near the opening of the school in September 2024. This is a fantastic opportunity for the Laurus Trust to bring our ethos into the heart of Manchester. As a multi-academy trust we are unashamedly academic, unapologetically aspirational and we want to provide children with an education on another level, so that every door will be open to them in the future.”

Prospective parents and carers have an opportunity to meet Mrs Thompson and other Senior Leaders from the Laurus Trust Primary Schools, as the Trust will be hosting the second of two public consultations on Wednesday 28th June between 4-7pm at Manchester Central Library
