Visionary leadership prepared to take radical decisions to bring about sustained long-term improvement.
A determination that no one gets left behind
A culture of risk taking founded on cutting edge research, creating a vibrant learning environment in which all people can excel.
The justification for our trust is that by working in partnership we will improve the current educational outcomes, social mobility and wellbeing for all young people in our area. There are three core values at the heart of our trust:
Innovation: Visionary leadership prepared to take radical decisions to bring about sustained long-term improvement.
We believe innovation is the key to unlocking the potential of our young people, which will be driven forward by the unique qualities of each school. Our young people will follow distinctive learning pathways and support and personal development programmes matched to their individual needs. Common rigorous accountability procedures will ensure gaps in performance can be quickly identified and addressed.
Inclusion: A determination that no one gets left behind.
We believe that through close partnership with parents, schools, other agencies and the local community the outcomes for our young people will be enhanced. The success of all groups working together in our trust provides a model for building future social collaboration. We recognise, value and celebrate differences and provide personalised learning and support for all. Our young people will have the skills and understanding to promote, lead and work as part of diverse teams which will shape their future.
Inspiration: A culture of risk taking founded on cutting edge research, creating a vibrant learning environment in which all people can excel.
We believe igniting the ambition and markedly raising the aspirations of young people, staff, parents and others in our local community will ensure a self-sustaining drive for social mobility. This is modelled by inspirational staff and leaders dedicated to academic excellence for all unlocking the imagination and creativity of all young people. Learning experiences, provided by leading universities and successful companies, will engage our young people in the possibilities of their future education and career pathways.
