The Trust grew out of the success and impact of a teaching school, and its capacity to challenge and support schools. Collaboration is at our core, with staff and trustees working together to learn to be ambitious and resilient. All our schools provide a virtual and real hug to our children and local communities.
We are based in three London boroughs and are diverse not only in the demographics of our environment but also in the range of teaching and support staff knowledge, backgrounds and experience.
We are a multi-academy trust with a teaching school, teaching alliance and research school within our family who are well placed to support a diverse and wide range of CPD and career opportunities.
We value the health and wellbeing of staff and provide a support and guidance programme so they know they have access to holistic, traditional and independent support whenever they need it.
We ensure all our schools are supported from day one, whether this is through physical attendance and support in school, to decision making or strategic thinking.
Dedicated business unit
Our central team underpins the business functions in all our schools, freeing up school support staff to develop more innovative ways of working to support pupils’ outcomes.
We provide a comprehensive governor induction programme so that any new governor knows what is expected of them in the role and how best they can provide challenge and support to their school. With a dedicated governance lead our governors
and schools are always supported.
We provide supportive challenge in a nurturing environment which allows schools and their staff to grow with us on our learning journey.
Through aggregated budgets we are able to achieve better economies of scale that ease the pressure of challenging school budgets.
