About Us outlines our philosophy. We are committed to partnership and collaboration, working with all our partners to achieve excellence for all. This approach ensures that all schools and their staff are fully engaged in the work of the Trust and know that they can add value and achieve outcomes for all our children.

  • Our team provides central services including Governance, Finance, Legal, Health and Safety, HR as well as specialist services such as Family Liaison and Education Psychology, with these services at hand schools can concentrate on educational success,
  • Our philosophy ensures the continuing significant role for Local Governing Bodies.
