Our Vision & Mission

What do we believe as an organisation?

We believe in the power of collaboration and the importance of developing schools who instil ambition and the desire in every staff member and every young person to discover and achieve their personal best, overcoming any challenge they may face. The Trust is committed to the pursuit of excellence, with young people at the heart of everything we do and personal wellbeing prioritised at every stage. We believe in ourselves. We believe in each other.
