About River Learning Trust

The River Learning Trust is a successful and growing Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) based in Oxfordshire.  

We are responsible four secondary schools, 7 primary schools, and a SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) provider; we have a secondary Free School in pre-opening and are in discussions with a number of other secondary and primary schools as the Trust is preparing for further growth in the coming years.    

Our Vision 

Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At the River Learning Trust we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. All of the schools in the River Learning Trust are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to a series of three principles: 

  • Commitment to Excellence 
  • Everyone Learning 
  • Respectful Relationships  

Within our vision: 

  • Each school has its own unique character and ethos, reflecting local communities and their needs and priorities 
  • The Trust establishes collective and collaborative autonomy where the drive for excellence comes from within the schools, to the benefit of all schools in the Trust 
  • The relationships within the Trust ensure genuine and impactful joint accountability – the outcomes for all of the pupils in all of the schools matter to everyone 
  • Schools continue to take responsibility for their own performance and character within a Trust context which provides both support and challenge
