About Cranmer Education Trust
The Cranmer Education Trust is an expanding school trust in the Greater Manchester Area.
We are a Church of England Trust. Therefore, we serve the whole community. We welcome all schools and all people into our Trust, both faith-designated or community, who want to go on a journey together to build a great future for children and young people. We are ambitious for all our young people and all of our staff: we want everyone to be everything they can be and everything they are meant to be.
The Trust was formed from The Blue Coat School, which is an outstanding secondary school in Oldham that has a large, established and successful sixth form. The Trust expanded to include 2 primary schools with another secondary school joining the Cranmer Education Trust in spring 2021 and the Cranmer Education Trust will be opening a new eight form of entry secondary Free School in Oldham in September 2022.
The Cranmer Education Trust also includes Manchester Nexus SCITT – school centred Initial Teacher Training founded September 2017. The opportunity to help train new teachers provides professional and career development for established staff.
We work collaboratively, share good practice and have a Trust-wide approach to development. We strive to ensure all our staff are able to build an excellent provision for our children and young people.
