We believe firmly that as a small MAT, we can combine the benefits of collaborative working with those of knowing our schools and the individuals who work within them well. We set great store by positive professional relationships and never want to lose sight of the unique characteristics and contexts of all of our schools.  Whilst we are willing to grow, we are determined that it will not be at the expense of these core values.


Our mission is to enable effective collaboration and partnerships that will support outstanding educational experiences for the pupils attending each of the Trust’s schools.  


Our mission is underpinned by our core beliefs and values that:  

  • every child has the right to a high quality education where excellence is the norm  

  • teachers have the right to teach free from disruption and distractions, and  

  • parents have the right to know that their children are well-cared for and supported to achieve their best.  


The Trust is creating and supporting a network of exceptional schools in which:  

  • each school sits at the heart of its community  

  • aspirations and expectations are high, and achievable, for everyone  

  • every pupil makes excellent progress and is enabled to achieve ambitious personal targets  

  • trust and mutual respect are at the core of all the relationships across the Trust  

  • enrichment is valued, planned for and resourced  

  • diversity is welcomed and celebrated  

  • pupil and parental engagement is high  

  • collaboration and partnerships across the Trust mean that all our staff may apply and develop their skills and experience, and  

  • teachers enjoy teaching and pupils enjoy learning.
