The Williamson Trust is a multi-academy trust based in Medway. Our family of schools include one secondary grammar, one 4 – 19 academy and four primary schools. The vision for the Trust is summed up in our strapline aspire, achieve, excel – all our members of our family of schools sights high, achieve to the best of their ability and excel in all they do. Through a relentless focus on the quality of teaching, pupil progress and leadership, all children in Trust schools are enabled to enjoy their learning, to develop 21st century skills for life and work to achieve beyond their expectations.
Our values and ethos are firmly rooted in traditional values with an uncompromising culture of no excuses, and we insist on high standards for staff and pupils. We mean this, we follow it and we refer to it every day because we believe in it. Every pupil matters, every pupil can achieve, every lesson counts. We make no excuses and we expect none from pupils or staff.
We offer staff a unique opportunity to experience other contexts and phases and to network with colleagues in other Trust schools. We will support you to be the best you can be. Great schools are built on a solid foundation of committed staff who believe there is no ceiling to pupil’s achievement. We know our staff within our schools work hard and aim to recognise this wherever possible. For all staff we take professional development seriously and have created career pathways to help you map out your career aspirations. Additionally, we provide an array of professional development programmes for our staff including NQT, middle and senior leader programmes supported by the MTSA. In October, we offer pupils and staff a two-week half term.
We want our teachers to concentrate on what they do best – teach. We have clear, consistent behaviour systems and every teacher has their own classroom. Our teachers plan the curriculum together allowing them to share expertise as well as the workload. This enables our teachers to retain autonomy in planning to meet the needs of their classes thereby developing a creative approach to teaching and learning. Our pupils will strike you with their confidence, respectful and caring matter. Together teaching and support staff form part of a vibrant, inclusive team which is helping to change our pupils’ lives.
