Skills for Life Trust
The Skills for Life Trust, is an established Multi Academy Trust (MAT) which comprises of two secondary academies and three primary academies: Greenacre Academy, Walderslade Girls’ School, Warren Wood Primary Academy, Hilltop Primary Academy and Chantry Community Academy.
The Trust vision is for Skills for Life to pervade the curriculum and extra-curricular activity. In addition to the normal school diet, the Trust aims to prepare our students for the adults that they are to become, through teaching life skills and exposing them to a whole range of potential careers and mentors from the business world, both locally and regionally. The Skills for Life vision also permeates through staff practices, where we are mindful of staff well-being and workload. We are a trust who cares for their staff and this is reflected in our low staff turnover and positive staff surveys.
The Trust have developed a set of core values for staff which are promoted, encouraged and led by our CEO, Mr Andy Reese. The values help to ensure staff have a healthy work-life balance, are recognised and praised for their work, and are empowered to make decisions.
