Information about the school

Background to Alternative Learning Trust

The Alternative Learning Trust became a multi-academy trust (MAT company number 11788031) in June 2019. There are now three schools within the Trust, The Limes College, North West Kent Alternative Provision Service (NWKAPS) and Will Adams Academy. The Department for Education would like Alternative Learning Trust to consider other alternative providers.

The Trust has been established to work with Pupil Referral Units (PRUs) and alternative providers who support vulnerable students to access and engage with education. Many of our students have special educational needs and have been excluded from mainstream education.

As a Trust we have the following core set of values for our staff and the families we support:

  • the need for people to flourish in all areas of their lives;

  • we are stronger through a sense of community;

  • social justice is vital.
