Putting children first

Empowering excellence

A family of schools

Transforming children's lives by working together

Welcome to the Learning Academy Partnership.  We are a highly successful Multi Academy Trust (MAT) and Teaching School (All Saints Teaching School Alliance) that puts every child, every one of our academies and all of our local communities first.

We are very proud that we are one of the top performing MATs nationally (2018) because we share a commitment for delivering an exceptional education for every child.  We achieve this through shared expertise, collective strength, shared responsibility and shared accountability.

It is this collective ‘buy-in’ that makes us unique as a MAT and the way in which all our staff work together for the benefit of every child across our Trust.

Mrs L Atkinson
Chief Executive

We are stronger together than we would be as a stand alone school and our children benefit from us being together in terms of life chances, experiences, quality of teaching and pastoral care.

Executive Head

Our results and opportunities for children, since joining the Learning Academy Partnership, have been the best they have ever been, improving the life chances of all of our children.


Being part of the Trust's family of academies has given my child some incredible experiences and opportunities that he would never have had previously - he loves being part of the Trust family.


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.
