How we operate and our Trust partnership offer?

Our experience, particularly when supporting weak and vulnerable schools, has shaped the way we operate our Trust, and how we sustain and drive school improvement.

Our thinking has also been informed by research that is rooted in best practice across the academy system.

We have strong systems and processes which can be adopted in other schools quickly and effectively. Our approach therefore, even with ‘good’ partners, is to work tightly (adopting the same key systems and approaches) and deeply (drilling down to a level that exerts control and influence) in three key areas: standards, business management and governance. Once effectiveness is secured, our instinct is then to work collaboratively to drive innovation and further improvement.
