The draw of becoming part of our thriving Trust is to raise pupil attainment, share the burden of business operations, centralise decision making and gain strong, professional leadership.
We don't promise that becoming part of our Trust will give improvements overnight. However, aligning with our culture and operating systems and being part of our group of schools will have enormous benefits, both the technical and non-technical.
Stronger Leadership: School leaders and teachers can combine their knowledge and planning abilities to work on challenges and solutions together.
Strategic Management: Governors and trustees can draw on each other’s experience to formulate strategic approaches.
Shared Staffing: Human resources within schools can work across our multiple sites. This can appease the recruitment challenges facing the teaching industry and offer more varied opportunities to staff.
Specialist Resources: With combined funding in our Trust, specialist knowledge can be bought in many different areas, spanning academic, extra-curricular and operational functions.
Professional Development: This is organised across our schools, thus spreading the cost per school and upskilling as many individuals as possible per session.
Economies of Scale: Our Trust is able to purchase as a whole, thereby achieving economies of scale not achievable by schools as individuals. With ever tightening budgets, this can help schools maintain and build upon the resources and standards they aspire to.
Shared Accountability: As a Trust represents multiple schools, it is in its interest to raise the profile of each, in line with rising expectations.
