The Abbey Academies Trust is a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) centered around people including pupils, staff, parents, carers, governors and our local communities. We offer a tried and tested framework for rapid school improvement and sustained success, working within a shared ethos of care and respect, whilst celebrating diversity.
We firmly believe that high achievement and continuing the process of raising achievement is not about short term fixes, it is about commitment, sharing and working together towards a vision of long term gains. Thus enabling pupils to achieve the highest possible standards and for them to want to be lifelong learners.
As a Multi Academy Trust, we not only encourage our pupils to strive for excellence in the core subjects, but to broaden their education, to embrace and develop to concepts of faith and spirituality, of hope and charity and to enable them to make more informed decisions later in life as broad-minded and knowledgeable British and world citizens. We describe this as ‘Rigour with Care’.
We have a vision of a community in which each person is offered the opportunity to fulfil their potential and to understand themselves to be valued for who they are. Through a stimulating and challenging learning environment, we pursue academic excellence and seek the flourishing of all members of the school community. As an inclusive and caring church school, our commitment is to help pupils become thoughtful, open-minded and compassionate human beings who have the knowledge, skills and motivation they need to bring about positive transformation in the world.
