Putting children first

Empowering excellence

A family of schools

Transforming children's lives by working together

We are a Trust where everything begins and ends with the children. We want to ensure that we have a profound impact on the futures of our children so that they have choices and options which will enable them to flourish as they go through life. Quite simply, we put children first in all that we do.

We live our vision by working collectively as a family of schools with a shared responsibility for all children, no matter which school they attend. We empower each other to deliver an exceptional curriculum offer for children where they are cared for, inspired, challenged and develop a love of learning.

We want every child to experience an excellent curriculum which is distinctive to their community and be taught by great teachers. Therefore, we nurture and care for our staff so that they can provide the very best for our children. As a Trust we work collectively to provide the very best professional development for staff so that they are empowered in their roles.

We care passionately about children outside of our Trust as well. We collaborate and work with other schools and Trusts as well as being a National English Hub that specialises in early reading and phonics.

We are driven by our values and our passion is to serve our pupils, staff and communities to the very best of our abilities.

Tracey Cleverly
Chief Executive

We feel true partners in our son’s educational journey - we appreciate the opportunity to collaborate and work with the school towards particular goals in his learning.


There is a clear dedication and passion from every member of staff. The focus is always on the children - in everything we do and say.


The partnership between the school community, churches and the Trust is exceptionally strong, mutually beneficial and having a tangible impact on all involved.

Together we can achieve more

Since joining the Trust, all of our academies have continued to improve, year-on-year, to deliver our shared promise of exceptional schools for every local community. We support existing staff during the transition, allowing them to continue focusing on putting children’s education first, whilst helping to remove any previous barriers to success.

Whether you’re an individual school or group of schools, we welcome any enquiries to find out more about the Learning Academy Partnership family and how this could benefit your school and how together we can benefit all of our children and communities.
