Why Join Our Trust

We strongly believe that becoming a member of our Trust will provide the young people and staff within your school with a wide range of benefits.

Being in at the start will place you in a unique position to add value both to your school and the Trust. We have attempted to summarise these benefits below, but as we start to work with you, our developing relationship will inevitably give rise to even more ways in which provision will be enhanced at your particular school.

  • enchanced learning - collaboration with high quality leaders and teachers across the Trust will improve learning and raise standards
  • enhanced staffing - there will be the ability for staff to move across the Trust for career development and to provide staffing resilience in an increasingly difficult market
  • enhanced careers for leaders at all levels - there will be career opportunities for leaders beyond individual schools within the Trust as its secondary and primary phases develop
  • enhanced provision - collaboration across teams (pastoral, subject and senior leadership) will allow best practice to be shared and challenges addressed across both phases

If you are interested in joining our Trust we would love to hear from you. Please email our CEO, Josephine Valentine to arrange an informal meeting.
