The Transforming Lives Educational Trust has a simple yet powerful mission to transform the life chances of the children and communities we serve.

We believe that nothing compares to the transformative power of learning and its singular ability to broaden horizons, deepen perspectives, and extend potential. We know that the very best schooling unlocks the doors of the future, and that all children deserve the best daily deal, every day.

Our family of primary and secondary academies work together to provide the best start for our children and young people, and our Trust is the natural home for forward-thinking and innovative practice, led by dedicated and talented staff.

As a successful and growing family of academies, we have developed the size and scope to be far more than the sum of our parts. Whether you are a parent or pupil interested in a place at one of our academies, or a staff member, governor or partner looking to join us, we hope this website gives you a strong sense of our inspiration, drive, and culture.

Above all, our son's happiness was key when choosing a school: he's never been so eager to go to school each morning! Thank you for inspiring him every day.
