BCAT VALUES Achievement Challenge High Aspiration Independent thinkers Equality Valued Excellence

We place the child first in all that we do and to all that we aspire. We are uncompromising in our desire to sustain improvement, deliver on standards and provide an outstanding educational experience for all. We are forward looking, equipping our young people with the skills, knowledge and aptitude to succeed but also strive to instil traditional values of hard work, resilience and respect for others. Despite the complexity of MAT organisation we remain in agreement with Professor Hargreaves (Self Improving School Systems, National College for School Leadership) who stated “Great classrooms make Great Schools” and Great schools therefore make a Great Trust. We are a school-based Trust that agree with this simple, yet profound statement.
