Our Philosophy

School Support

As a Trust, we are committed to supporting excellence across the three key pillars of school improvement, school operations, and governance.

Ultimately, everything we do as a Trust is guided by our core purpose:  "to enhance the life chances of every child and drive social mobility"; and our mission:  "a quality education and experience for all".

We are clear that our approach to school support and school improvement must always be underpinned by our new Trust values: dignity, collaboration, positivity, and aspiration.  In particular, "collaboration" is viewed in terms of both challenge and support.  Only with both elements in place can the conditions for sustainable school improvement be created, whereby students and staff alike truly flourish.  

Every school has its own unique identity and its own set of values.  However, we are stronger together, and our collaborative approach is at the heart of everything we do.
