Our Mission

1.  Deliver ambitious and high quality education for every child and young person through collaboration and opportunity across our schools and communities.

2. Commit to long-term relationships with other educators and wider society to bring depth and breadth to the education offer for pupils and students, and for enhanced staff development.

3.  Secure maximum value and impact from our resources working together and make a greater contribution for the good of all our young people, our economy and our communities.


The Trust began its journey with three local Abingdon schools coming together, formalising the good working relationships over many years.  We have strong governance and strategic leadership networks across the schools yet retain the unique atmosphere of each school, and have greatly strengthened cross-phase working.  All schools are good schools with stable finances, and a Trust reserve to support capital investments in our schools.
