Welcome from the CEO

Welcome to the Haberdashers' academies trust.

Welcome to our Trust and thank you for visiting our website. We are a multi-academy trust consisting of four secondary schools and five primary schools and have been educating children and young people since 1876.

Our moral imperative at that time was to ensure that every child in our care received the best possible education in order to make the best start in life. That moral imperative remains today, underpinned by our values of aspiration and achievement, personal responsibility, self-discipline and mutual respect. 

In a complex world, we need our children and young people to be as well equipped for their future as possible so that they can flourish. We will support them to become compelling individuals so that by the time they leave us they will have experienced a range of opportunities that not only build their mind but also build their character.

We are proud to be a diverse community and take seriously the need to ensure that every child, young person and adult connected with our schools feels included, welcomed and listened to. This is an important part of who we are and our commitment to equality and fairness. This commitment remains at the forefront of our work.                                                                                                                        

Our vision 2026 is

‘Every school an excellent school’

Excellent outcomes for ALL children and young people so that they can be successful in their next steps and future lives;

A great employer, attracting, retaining and developing the best staff;

The Trust of choice and a welcome presence in our communities.


Whether you are a parent seeking an exceptional school for your child, a member of staff looking to progress their career and make a difference, or someone interested in becoming a Governor, I hope that you will be encouraged to find out more about us.
