This is a new Multi Academy Trust set up to serve primary and secondary schools with the aim to build a learning community to share educational excellence for everyone. We want to reach a position where all members of the trust are valued and able to make a powerful contribution to the on-going progress of improvement across the AAT.
It is important to us that all members of the trust hold the same broad views on the values associated with outstanding provision for all. The cross-phase nature of the trust is critical to supporting a holistic approach to education, enabling professionals from all phases to share ideas and work together to raise standards.
A key aspect of our vision is for each school to maintain its own distinctive character and to cherish heritage whilst at the same time seek opportunities to further strengthen culture and ethos across the AAT.
The AAT currently includes Sandringham School, St. Albans, and from September 2018 will be establishing a new school, the Ridgeway Academy, in Welwyn Garden City. A number of other schools are considering their next steps with the AAT.
This is an exciting opportunity to show how collaborative working can shape and define improvement and provide amazing opportunities for the young people in our care.
If this approach is appealing we would love to hear from you.
