How we work

In This Section

An impactful, collaborative approach

Across our partnership, staff at all levels have an opportunity to be part of a movement – driving innovations in the education sector to give all our children the very best start in life. We currently have over 1,000 employees – and over 8,500 pupils and students, with zero permanent exclusions. Whatever the challenging context, our children are at the heart of what we do.

Continuous improvement

Outstanding is not a destination. As a trust we continually seek out routes to improve and be exceptional in the education we offer all our children and young people, as well as in the working environment we offer our staff.

The majority of our academies are rated good or better by Ofsted, with some of our secondaries recording Progress 8 results amongst the best in the country. Where schools have joined us requiring improvement, the transition to good can be seen over a period of two years.

Of course results are only part of the story. We attribute our consistent and collaborative approach to strategy as key to our success. Our skilled and specialist staff work closely with academy leadership teams, across all phases and settings, to quickly make an impact – offering access to shared resources and expertise not ordinarily found in a standalone school.
