A picture of who we are
As a Trust set up by the Diocese of Gloucester Board of Education, all we do is steeped in both the National Church of England Vision for Education: Deeply Christian – Serving the Common Good and the diocesan LIFE Together vision.
Deeply Christian - Serving the Common Good is permeated by four core elements WISDOM, HOPE, COMMUNITY, DIGNITY. Our work is rooted in these elements and in all our schools these will be in evidence in our decision making, our relationships, our communications and our learning.
Together the Trust Board, central staff and our school communities are united in enabling children and staff to grow, flourish and succeed in an environment of educational excellence.
Our vision is to enable all to flourish.
Our vision is rooted in our Christian foundation and our belief that all within our family should experience life in all its fullness.
Our aims are to be
Boldly passionate about excellence in learning
Relentlessly driven in our aspiration for everyone
Our core principles
