In 2018, our three schools, one primary and two secondary, came together to form Abingdon Learning Trust so that we could:

  • pool and share our strengths, knowledge, skills and experience to support our shared vision and values

  • create efficiencies so that resources can be used effectively to eradicate disadvantage and improve outcomes for all
  • work creatively and collaboratively so that our communities prosper and succeed

We wanted to collaborate more formally to bring resilience and great practice to the schools as an everyday occurrence. Rather than each school being its own entity with the limited support from the local authority, we could take full advantage of working together to benefit our students, with many people together generating great ideas, and with the capacity to make improvements.

We have a track record demonstrating the advantages of working together.
