All of the schools within the Education Partnership Trust are united by a drive to improve opportunities and outcomes for children, young people and professionals in the education sector.

Our schools all have access to the central services and support provided by the trust. Where schools are not good or outstanding, the EPT will facilitate a high quality and bespoke package of support. For our good and outstanding schools we encourage and facilitate continued development. There is an expectation that they will engage in delivering school to school support for their own benefit and the benefit of other schools in the trust.

“We work together to support and encourage our schools, share our thoughts and make the right decisions for our young people.”

Ian Kendrick, Director, EPT
