Welcome to the Balmoral Learning Trust website which we hope you will find both informative and interesting. We firmly believe our philosophy of partnership and collaboration, which underpins everything we do is central to driving forward our successful agenda. Our focus is on all of our children realising their full potential in life and through our diverse partnership, we aim to achieve learning and excellence for all.

The individuality of our schools is important to us and their role in their communities key to their success, but through collective action and supportive challenge we can achieve so much more together. The Balmoral Learning Trust approach is based on a core belief in standards in education, the pursuit of excellence for all our children and through its leaders, a pursuit of aspiration and achievement. However, all this is underpinned by a philosophy based on inspiring our children to achieve of their best and the most important thing – to make education and learning enjoyable!

Balmoral Learning Trust at present consists of two schools rated Good by OFSTED, East Herrington Primary Academy and Hetton Lyons Primary School. Both are at the centre of their local communities and play a significant role in their day to day life.

Our Trust website is easily navigated by using the menu along the top of the screen and the drop down menu on each subject heading will allow you to explore Balmoral Learning Trust in greater detail. If you want further information, or as a school, are interested in a discussion about joining the Trust on our journey, please use the Contact Us section and we will be in touch as soon as we can.
