Our Journey

  • Strong student outcomes at both of the original schools
  • Growth to three schools in April 2018 when Carshalton High School for Girls joined
  • Continued recruitment of excellent staff
  • The Headteachers have been freed from the business functions of the school to allow more of a focus on school performance
  • Effective sharing and benchmarking of school data has enabled better evaluation of performance
  • Centralisation of support functions has resulted in significant cost savings
  • A Trust-wide improvement strategy focussed on collaboration and support between schools including Executive team support, a cross-trust dept. review programme and support for underperforming departments
  • Effective staff development including a Trust wide teacher development  programme, annual GLT staff conference, and a sharing of expertise and resources
  • Increased student opportunities through subject collaboration, joint careers events, Higher Education programme, competitions and student leadership training
  • A strong Trust  Board and governance model that allows specialisation at committee level including Local Governing Bodies (LGBs) 
  • A financially secure Trust able to support and manage further growth of the Trust
