Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Who We Are

We are one of the largest Multi-Academy Trusts in England.

We were established in 2004 with a vision to create "Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community" and have since grown into a family of 51 academies.

We currently serve over 28,000 young people, 49% of whom are from disadvantaged backgrounds and 31% speak English as an additional language.

We are determined to raise the educational bar for all our students and to close the educational gap that exists between disadvantaged students and their more privileged counterparts.

Our academies are in five main regions of England, providing either primary, secondary, all-through education or special education.

Our strong ethos is integral to our educational provision – it is an expression of our character, a statement of who we are and therefore the lens through which we assess all that we do.

We are committed to a model of:

Inclusion, equality, healthy relationships, hope and perseverance and this permeates all aspects of the life and culture of each Academy and the organisation as a whole.

We operate as a family of academies in all our regions. We believe in community and aspire to build a community hub within which each academy or family of academies sits. Our Hub teams facilitate access to a range of services such as adult learning schemes, healthy living advice and activities, sports facilities and out-of-hours youth activities.

Each academy also benefits from being part of a Regional Improvement Network and academies work closely their regional Oasis colleagues to share best practice and drive improvement.
