We work together as a family of schools who are committed to deep collaboration, collective approach, and a shared responsibility for every child in our Trust.
We are fully aligned as a single organisation but celebrate the distinctiveness of each community we serve. Schools make local decisions as well as enjoying the benefits of the decisions that we make collectively for the benefit for all in the Trust.
Pupils are empowered through the shared expertise and collaboration which constantly improves our offer to them and their communities.
Staff flourish from our commitment to workload and wellbeing, our Trust professional development offer and the deep collaboration which happens between colleagues. Career development opportunities are plentiful because we are large group of schools.
Schools benefit because they are supported through our business support functions which enables leaders to focus on the main thing – teaching and learning. We offer a School to School Support Strategy which supports our academies achieve their goals, no matter what their starting points. This enables our leaders to concentrate on teaching and learning and care for all our pupils, support for business managers and administration staff, strengthening the effectiveness of all our schools.
Our centralised team of professionals through collaboration helps all our schools and partners to secure efficiencies, access best value for money, effective use of resources and the best educational provision.
"The level of support provided by the Trust has been instrumental in helping the school to move forward. This includes support with training and coaching of staff to continue to strengthen teaching and learning."
"The school to school support provided by the Trust means that no school feels isolated, there is always someone available to talk things through with, sharing ideas and expertise across all levels and areas of the school life."
"I love that we learn in so many different ways. I love that we have the opportunity to come together with other children, teachers and schools in our Trust."
