Learning Academy Partnership

A highly successful, inclusive Multi Academy Trust

Flourishing Futures

Our Trust was established in the summer of 2012 from its origins as a National Support School, at Ilsham C of E Academy. We have a Church of England foundation which is fully inclusive and welcomes both church and community schools. Admission criteria to all of our academies is fully inclusive, welcoming those of all faiths or none. 

The mission and core purpose of our School Trust is to enable Flourishing Futures for our children by working together as a values-led family of exceptional academies, delivering an entitlement to exceptional education across all our local communities and where every child flourishes. We believe that every young person, regardless of their background or context, can achieve and exceed the highest of expectations.

Our Vision:

We will be an exceptional School Trust. We are committed to social mobility and a culture of belonging. We do this by investing in people enabling every child to be taught by the very best teachers so that we can achieve social change and all children flourish. 


Core Values

Our core values guide the way in which we work together:


We champion opportunity and equality for all and in all that we do.


We invest in each other and our communities.


We are one team and agree to work as one family.

Our Beliefs

We believe:

We are stronger together – we deliver and achieve more than we could ever do individually.

In a sense of belonging – every member of our School Trust matters and knows that they belong.

In removing barriers – ensuring that where you begin does not limit your horizons.

In realising the possible – you cannot be what you cannot see. 

Local Hubs

We operate a Hub model where academies in each local area work closely together to share knowledge and expertise on a regular basis whilst still benefiting from the support of all schools within the Trust family.

Our Hubs have been developed with scalability in mind, so that new schools and groups of schools can join and form new Hubs within the Trust.

Our current geographical Hubs are:

SOUTH DEVON HUB: Dartington, St Michael's, Dunsford

SOUTH HAMS HUB: All Saints' Thurlestone, Charleton, West Alvington

TORQUAY HUB: Ellacombe, Ilsham, Warberry, All Saints Marsh

WEST DEVON HUB: Lifton, Lamerton, Gulworthy

CORNWALL HUB: Jacobstow, Marhamchurch, St Mark's
