Woodard Academies Trust
Welcome to Woodard Academies Trust, a collaboration of six schools across England working together to meet our ambitious goals for students and staff and to deliver our vision:
- Opening minds: igniting a curiosity about the world, nuturing spiritual and cultural growth and developing a love of learning for life.
- Raising expectations of everyone in the Trust, staff, pupils and governors, of the standards we can reach and the outcomes we can achieve, irrespective of background.
- Transforming lives: a successful education will transform the lives of young people into adulthood so they have rewarding careers, strong relationships, and make positive contributions to their community and society.
Our Trust has an impressive heritage as part of the Woodard family of schools, created by founder Nathaniel Woodard in 1848 with the aim of providing an education based on Christian values and a belief in nurturing and enriching each individual child.
This is an exciting time for us with an ambitious strategy for strengthening our leadership and governance, improving education for pupils and ensuring staff have uplifting, purposeful careers.
Our main focus is school improvement, drawing on the skills and expertise across the Trust to ensure every school is at least 'good' and all pupils achieve well.
We also want to extend the benefits of being part of our trust to schools who share our vision for pupils, families, colleagues and the communities of which they are a part. You can find more information about joining us here.
