Ethos and Culture

Our Approach

“Our mission is to transform educational underperformance in the hardest places by making long term commitments to communities to improve achievement.
We champion new approaches to improve life chances for young people.”

Our five core values support this mission and shape every aspect of our culture.

Ambition for all

We believe in the importance of a relentless determination to succeed. Our students are supported to fully achieve their potential and live rewarding lives. We value each student equally and ensure that no-one is left behind.  

High expectations

We have high expectations of every student and staff member. We believe in the virtues of professionalism, hard work and commitment.  As part of this, everyone knows they must live up to the trust that we place in them.

Excellent teaching and support

Our staff share an absolute commitment to ensure each child in the Trust’s care receives the best possible education. We teach under the guiding principle of: ‘Is this good enough for my child?’  

Working together

As a Trust, our schools work together to support each other, develop innovative ideas and share best practice.  

Contribute to society

Our schools, students and staff take pride in their role in society and work hard to benefit their communities.
