We are stoked for Thistley Hough Academy!

An academy in Stoke-on-Trent which has had a four-year long partnership with Novus is now one of the leading schools in the city according to its most recent Ofsted inspection. 

We’ve enjoyed working with Thistley Hough over the past four years, which makes the academy’s grading of ‘good with some outstanding features’ all the more poignant.  The grading is testament to the leadership of principal Holly Hartley and her staff’s relentless drive to raise standards and academic excellence.

Our latest collaboration with the academy sees us working with them as part of their Business Class scheme partnership, a national education-focussed initiative driven by Business in the Community, one of the Prince of Wales’ charities.

Congratulations to all Thistley Hough’s staff, pupils, parents and carers on this well-deserved recognition by Ofsted!

Social houses in Wrexham set for spruce up

SOCIAL HOUSES IN WREXHAM SET FOR SPRUCE UP

Social housing tenants in Wrexham are set to benefit from more modern accommodation following the awarding of £500,000 worth of works to contractor Novus Property Solutions by Wrexham County Borough Council. The work will see Novus carry out internal re-decoration of void properties and a programme for external repairs and painting to the council’s stock over the next three years, with the potential for a further three-year extension. Novus’s work builds on the relationship the firm has established with Wrexham County Borough Council in previous years carrying out refurbishment and repair projects. Sam Frame, head of operations at Novus, said: “Novus has a strong presence in the North West and Wales and this contract will enable us to strengthen this by employing more people and continue to give back to the communities we operate in. “We’ve built a good understanding of how to deliver refurbishment projects to Wrexham Council’s high standards over the years and, together with experience working alongside other local authorities and housing associations, this will develop further. This contract will ensure social housing in Wrexham is fully prepared for future use.” Lee Roberts, Property Investment Lead at Wrexham County Borough Council, said: “Over the past few years we have invested heavily to improve our housing stock to provide our tenants with modern and affordable housing now and into the future. This contract will see that work continue and as we have worked with Novus in the past we look forward to continued good relations with both ourselves and our tenants.”
