Mission, Vision & Values

We strive that our Academies are an outward facing inspirational learning hub that allows all students and colleagues to achieve all that they can; have an ethos that ignites a passion for learning, discovery and creativity and nurtures a moral code and self-worth that stays with our young people all their lives.

Our Mission

To provide the best education in order to empower learners, improve lives, and strengthen communities.

Our Vision:

  • All schools in the Trust will be inclusive, safe, and exciting centres of learning for our communities.
  • Our family of excellent schools will be characterised by high achievement and success for all working within the concept of aligned autonomy.
  • We will improve the outcomes for every learner, elevate their life chances and aspirations and help them to succeed.
  • Every school within the Trust will be supported, guided, and challenged to achieve exceptional performance.
  • We will grow our people, supporting and developing our staff.
  • We will embrace further growth of the Multi Academy Trust within the local area.
  • We will be at the forefront of changes to the future school-led system and MAT development. We will be an outward looking MAT which will be working locally, regionally, and nationally.
