We are proud to have become part of the Shaw Education Trust family as of 1st April 2022.

Their Collaborative Approach 

They lead and manage academies in all phases, all sectors and in all communities.

They believe that every child should have the opportunity to be successful whatever their starting point. They pledge an unswerving commitment to improve, accelerate and enable ambitious life goals amongst all young people in our academies.

They don't believe in prescribing a curriculum; instead we support our academies to offer a curriculum that deepens knowledge, develops skills and fires the curiosity of students. They also expect each Academy to offer a range of support that addresses life after school, develops students' independence and helps them to prepare for university and the world of work.

Senior leaders at each Academy have the support of a core team and commissioned experts to provide high quality teacher training and development to staff to ensure they are continually developing their good practice.

They also encourage collaboration within and between our academies to create a community of professionals with a wide range of valuable experience and specialist knowledge to share.

Integrity and transparency underpin our accountability approach. They believe in earned autonomy for our academies, with the Trust Board providing the appropriate level of challenge and support - as well as oversight - to each. Local accountability is supported through a system of Academy Councils,
