Our Team

We are passionate about local education. We firmly believe that a happy, safe and successful time at school is the greatest gift we can give the young people in our community, with plenty of opportunities to discover, nurture and enjoy new talents, interests and skills. This is a belief shared across our Trust. 

As well as running their own schools, our Headteachers and senior leaders help to lead and shape the Trust, alongside our central team and Board of Trustees. This rich combination of expertise and experience results in a shared resource that enables the Trust to support all schools in our vision to offer an outstanding educational experience for every child.
