The Trust evolved from the success of the Fallibroome Academy, an outstanding single Academy Trust with a national reputation for excellence. The Trust’s aims are simple, to create the conditions for:

  • All students to leave school with the combination of skills and qualities that will enable them to progress to the job, apprenticeship or University/College place of their choice;
  • Each student to achieve the highest possible examination results and realise their potential;
  • Each school to become the school of choice for the local community;
  • Each school to become ‘A Place for Excellence’.

The Trust is accountable to the Secretary of State for Education and receives a Master Funding Agreement from the Education Funding Agency. Funds are delegated to the schools according to nationally agreed formulas. The Trust’s accounts are subject to audit and published annually at Company House.
