Welcome to Kings Academy Trust

The aim of our Trust is to ensure that all schools we work with are judged by Ofsted to be at least ‘Good’ with the aspiration for all to be ‘Outstanding’.

Schools involved with the Trust are supported by Oakwood Academy, an outstanding special needs school. All the staff and pupils we work with have the benefit of accessing the best support and professional development that is available.

We provide extensive support to facilitate high quality teaching and learning as well as continuous professional development. Ensuring we support colleagues at every stage of their professional career and grow future leaders.

We encourage all schools to retain their own strong individual identity within their local community and within our family of schools we ensure the highest standards are achieved and maintained.

Kings Academy Trust has recognised leaders in the field of education, including a National Leader of Education (NLE) and a large and growing number of Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE). This ensures that our Trust has the highest level of expertise we can utilise and deploy.
