Achievement through caring

Our mission:

As a Trust, it’s our mission to empower everyone in our Trust and our communities to live and breathe our values and Achievement Through Caring, to reach their full potential.



We think everyone deserves a superb education. Everything we do is designed to deliver that – and we encourage everyone to strive for excellence too.


Being truthful, honest and sincere is really important to us. We like to think of it as doing the right thing even when no-one is watching!


Understanding how other people feel is an important part of growing up. We encourage everyone to think of others and treat them as you would like to be treated.


We want our children and young people to be able to express themselves, whether that is through art, music, debating, drama or whatever else makes them happy and fulfilled.


Whether you’re a student, parent or member of staff, we work hard to make sure everyone is treated fairly and equally.

Joining our Multi Academy Trust can help you elevate your school, staff, and the community, and unlock a child’s full potential.
