The Prospect Trust

Developing education

excellence in the community

The Trust

The Prospect Trust was established in September 2017.  Our main purpose is to enable strategic collaboration between education providers in order to maintain and improve standards.  

Vision and mission

Our vision is to for the Trust to be a dynamic family of local academies driving academic excellence in our community.  Our mission is to provide outstanding education, focusing clearly on excellent, innovative teaching, learning and pastoral care for all learners.

The Trust’s core values are:

  • Partnership:     working together we can deliver better and more effectively than working alone.

  • Restlessness:   the current state is never good enough.

  • Trust:                 open and transparent in everything we do.

  • Quality:              aspire to be the best in everything we do.

The Trust’s strategic aims are to:

  • Improve teaching and learning, using the very latest understanding of effective pedagogy to help raise the aspiration, ambition and achievement of all our learner

  • Improve progression opportunities and smooth cliff edges at the transition points between ages 5 to 18

  • Inspire Trust people to be exceptional, providing professional development opportunities for staff that are second to none

  • Grow a collaborative culture to maximise the value of our combined resources and talent

  • Build closer partnership and engagement with other local educational, business and community providers

  • Create cost-effective and financially sustainable, high quality support services which underpin teaching and learning across the Trust

The Prospect Trust will build on the considerable strengths within its Academies so that each is an exceptional beacon of excellence within its phase of education. Cost effective core services will be established to support all Trust Academies in realising their goals; all members of the Trust communities will work as one to that aim.

The young people entrusted to us will have a curriculum and enrichment offer which is engaging, enjoyable and provides genuine challenge and progression. Outstanding teaching, alongside support to accelerate personal development, will help learners to achieve success in nationally valued qualifications together with the essential skills and attitudes needed to negotiate a lifetime of opportunities and challenges successfully.
