Welcome from the CEO


Welcome to our Trust website, which I hope conveys what we believe in, how we work together as a family of schools and the positive impact we have on all our children and families.

What is different about our Trust is that we have seized the opportunity to bring four schools, only a few minutes apart, together to build a model of collaboration that is almost unique. Our two secondary schools share systems, curriculum and resources to ensure huge benefit to our pupils, and we are now implementing a strong model of transition between primary and secondary that is transformative.

We educate over 3000 pupils from Nursery to Sixth Form and we want each and every one of them to turn their potential into performance. We can already demonstrate that working as a family of schools is making a real difference to the opportunities for our pupils and our staff; we also know that we are only at the start of turning the potential of our family of schools into sustained, transformational success.

We are a deeply values- driven group of schools- we believe that school leadership begins with service- service to our teachers, our pupils and our parents. It is a huge privilege to be gifted the care of someone’s child and it is a moral responsibility we care about deeply.

The best education always has the same thing at its core- wonderful teachers spending quality time with pupils. So building closer connections between people is a natural place for us to begin in The Park Academies Trust- we encourage collaboration, innovation and curiosity in our colleagues. We also look after them well so they can look after our pupils brilliantly.

There is so much joy to be had in education, whether we are teaching, learning or simply seeing each other flourish.

I look forward to welcoming you to our family of schools.

Benedick Ashmore-Short

Chief Executive
