The trust is based on fundamental core values in keeping with the very best of village college and community-based education to deliver excellence for all pupils across each of the trust’s academies. We now have six core principles that frame all we seek to do:

  • The excellence principle: Education must be of the very highest standard
  • The comprehensive principle: Education must be for all types and abilities of pupils
  • The broad education principle. This principle confirms that education should be broadly based and develop the whole person
  • The community principle: Every academy must be at the heart of the local community and serve it well
  • The partnership principle: Each academy must seek to work positively in partnership with others for mutual benefit
  • The international principle: The curriculum inside and outside the classroom must have a clear international dimension.

We want to ensure that every individual pupil achieves his or her full, positive potential through a broad and high-quality education. All the academies of the trust work in close partnership to offer exceptional opportunities for students at all stages of their education.

Staff also work together to offer support and share best practice. We have high-quality IT infrastructure across all our academies to ensure that really effective on-line learning can take place for all our pupils.
