The majority of our schools are now judged by Ofsted to be Good, with many moving to Good since joining our Trust. Our ambition is for all schools to be Good within three years of joining the Trust and most schools within our Trust to be Outstanding.

We are an ambitious Trust, but one which believes firmly in the importance of taking people with us on the journey. Our goal is to be the Trust of choice for students, families, and staff, ensuring that all students make good progress, realising our ambition to be in the top highest 20 performing Trusts nationally for student outcomes.
