Jamie Bennett will join the Voyager family as the 5th grade Science teacher. She was born in Nebraska, spent her younger years in Massachusetts, and has lived in Tennessee since she was eight.

Jamie recently graduated from Tennessee State University with a Masters in Elementary Education and K-6 licensure.

Only 23 per cent of youngsters at The Voyager Academy scored A*-C grades in English and maths last year. The academy had been run by the Cam Academy Trust (formerly known as Comberton Academy Trust), before the Thomas Deacon Academy Education Trust (TDAET) took it over this week.

Both Voyager, located in Mountsteven Avenue and Thomas Deacon Academy, in Queen’s Gardens, have been working together in partnership for a number of months in an effort to improve standards at Voyager.

Scott Hudson, Principal of The Voyager Academy, added: “The Voyager Academy has made significant progress in recent months and the local partnership model has really demonstrated the advantages of neighbouring schools working together, sharing resources and experience.
