Vision, Values and Ethos



Our vision is to continue to grow our collaborative North East Trust. We acknowledge that through our partnership we can change and influence, for the better, the educational landscape and the levelling up agenda. Children, because of the education they access, leave our schools as well-rounded ambitious individuals, well equipped in all aspects for a modern, diverse society where they will fulfil their potential.




The core values of Extol are 

Inspiration    Excellence    Partnership

these underpin our ethos.


Inspiration Extol is a Trust that inspires all of its schools to be that “stand out school”. We constantly seek inspiration from local, national and international initiatives/research. We passionately believe that by investing in our workforce we develop an inspiring, committed and professional team within each school


Excellence Extol has a focus on excellence in all that we do.  We strive to achieve the very best for our schools and their communities. We know that access to an excellent education opens opportunities for individuals and the community in which they live.


Partnership Extol knows there is power within a partnership of schools.  We believe that a true, inclusive partnership with people driven by the same 'why', allows our family of schools to learn with and from each other.  Ensuring no individuals, no schools or communities are left behind. Extol is determined to fulfil this promise. Collaboration and co-operation are fundamental to how we work. 




Our ethos is characterised by a culture of inclusion, positive attitude, high expectation and aspiration. These are related to the whole learning community, pupils and staff.

  • Everyone has a voice and is listened to
  • Everyone deserves the widest opportunities to achieve success
  • Everyone will succeed, external factors are not a barrier to learning or success
  • We invest in people, our school communities and the communities we serve
