As a forward and outward facing Trust, we are confident that by working in collaboration with our schools and with our wider partners, our aspirational vision of developing “stand out schools” is secured.
Our highly regarded external partners support the professional development of our work force, challenge and hold leaders to account, ensure we are knowledgeable regarding current practice and support our ethos of talent spotting and development of our future leaders.
