About Us

We are an enthusiastic, determined Multi Academy Trust, with a wide range of experience, determined to provide the best for our pupils. We currently comprise of 4 primaries. By July we hope to be a Trust of 5 primary schools across Sunderland and Hartlepool. 

We are a designated Teaching School Hub, one of the centres of excellence identified by the Dfe to lead the golden thread of teacher development from ITT, Appropriate Body, NPQs and CPD across Sunderland, South Tyneside, Gateshead and partners across the North East. We are also a designated sponsor Trust and we work to support other schools and work across the system as NLE and SLEs. We believe that development of all our staff is key to the high achievement of our schools and have a Trust school improvement strategy that supports our mission.

We work closely with a wide range of partners across the system and are fortunate to have a voice on regional and national level. 

As a CofE Multi Academy Trust we believe wholeheartedly in inclusivity and are proud of the diversity that exists in our Trust – regardless of size, Church school or non-Church school, context or community, we believe in providing our core purpose of education for all children and young people through our Trust values, for the common good of all of our communities. We respect the individuality of our schools and believe that our schools are best placed to meet the needs of their school communities including following their own curriculum and school values, based on their individual context. We are all committed to supporting each other to ensure all our children can have fullness of life where all things are possible. Children are at the heart of everything we do.
