Our shared values

Community Schools Trust is a multi-academy trust with a proven track record of creating extraordinary outcomes for students from all backgrounds.

Our aim is simple – to provide a first-rate education for every child, and create outstanding schools that change perceptions and expectations across whole communities. We are:

  • Focused on supporting each student’s path to excellence

  • Informed by the latest education research, to constantly improve our curriculum

  • Passionate about giving young people the best chance for success

What we stand for:


We have the highest possible ambition for educational success and aim to raise achievement for all. 


We are committed to improving the life chances of all students. 


We are committed to helping all pupils make better progress than their peers nationally.


We believe in providing a disciplined, safe and structured school environment with open and regular lines of communication between all stakeholders.


We provide a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum that is well planned, sequenced and delivered using our innovative teaching framework.


We believe in providing effective feedback to students so that they know how to improve, are fully engaged and are applying basic skills appropriately.


We expect all members of each school community to challenge each other to reach high standards and to never accept mediocrity. We strive for all schools in the trust to be self-improving organisations that drive continual improvement.


We believe our schools should stand at the centre of their communities and work closely with parents.


We create and develop strong leadership from governors, senior leaders, middle leaders, teachers and students alike.


We are committed to effective systems across all schools in the trust to support the good order and success of students.
