Pennine Trust

About us

The PENNiNE Trust is a young, vibrant, cross phase multi academy trust which was jointly established by three primary schools and one secondary school. Our family of schools have an unswerving determination to provide every child in our care with a high quality education, offering the best possible start in life. Innovation, inclusion and inspiration are at the heart of our ethos.

We will innovate to ensure provision matches the needs of our pupils, providing a knowledge-rich curriculum and enriching experiences which stimulate our pupils and raise aspirations.

We are fully inclusive, developing school cultures where no child is ever left behind and where pupils, staff, families and those in the wider community are valued and supported.

We seek to inspire all members of our community to realise their full potential and achieve the highest standards, tackling any potential obstacles to progress with tenacity and an indomitable attitude.

Trust leaders adopt an evidence-informed approach to developing all aspects of school provision and are committed to high quality professional development of staff, so that we have an exceptional curriculum and pedagogy in all our schools. We are confident that our shared ethos and collective sense of purpose will lead to exemplary collaboration and sustained improvement.

I am both proud and excited to have been given the opportunity to lead the Pennine Trust in this next stage of its development, and to working with other school and trust leaders locally to ensure the very best education for young people in Pendle and across the wider region. We have high aspirations for this trust and for what can be achieved in partnership with all other organisations who are determined to improve the life chances of all young people locally.

I hope this website gives you a flavour of our Trust and each of our schools, as well as details of how to contact me or other members of our team should you wish to know more.
