Applying to Join the Trust

At The Consortium Academy Trust, we are ambitious about the future - creating learning environments and excellence in teaching and learning that provide our children and young people with the best chance at a successful future. Coupled with this is the commitment, care and investment in our people who we believe are our greatest asset.

Our vision is Shaping Positive Futures as we strongly believe our sole purpose is supporting children and young people to achieve their ambitions. This vision gives us a shared sense of purpose and direction and is something we are all proud to be a part of.

As a Trust we understand the value of developing effective and strong relationships with all our schools, and this principle underpins our approach to growing the Trust.

Any school or academy interesting in joining the Trust will be given full consideration by the Board and although our processes may seem lengthy they are designed to ensure that both parties are able to gain a thorough understanding of the vision, aims and ambitions of all concerned.

We know that time spent in getting to know each other will pay dividends moving forward, and will help to ensure a successful partnership over many years.

The Trust ensure that, as a Head, there is always a network of people who you can turn to for advice and guidance, including other Heads and the central services team.


Being part of the Trust has provided our school with a vital network of support and guidance as we have navigated all that we have faced this year together.
