Leigh Academies Trust
Leigh Academies Trust is a not-for-profit organisation operating across three clusters; South East London, North-West Kent and Central Kent. The Trust succeed in supporting and assisting schools to build upon their existing strengths and to help them achieve rapid educational transformation. We have significant experience in running schools, both with sponsored academies and schools which have chosen to convert to Academy status. We currently have 12 academies; 5 Secondaries, 5 Primaries, 1 Special Needs Academy and 1 UTC, educating over 8,000 students on a daily basis across all Key Stages. We also have two further academies in pre-opening phase which will be fully functional by September 2016 and 2017. Our size and our location separate us from other multi-academy trusts; we are expanding at a gradual rate, being selective in our choice of schools, ensuring that the academies who join us can fully make use of our expertise, our leadership and our values. Our academies are close in proximity allowing us to share best practice in convenient and effective ways. Leigh Academies Trust motto is as follows – ‘Shaping Lives, Transforming Communities’. We successfully continue to have a positive impact in our community, and will continue to do so with our planned expansion over the coming academic years. This is a very exciting and pivotal time to join our Trust.
