Welcome to One Excellence Trust
Since its formation in 2017 One Excellence Trust has grown to include four primary schools, all with thriving nurseries, providing education and opportunities for 1,050 students. We pride ourselves on transforming education locally and regionally, with our schools and nurseries being at the heart of their local communities and are determined to raise standards of educational achievement to the very highest levels.
All of our schools and academies are an integral part of their local communities and have a strong sense of identity. We value the contribution each of our communities make and the distinctive opportunities and diversity they offer to the Trust. Working in collaboration, we offer exceptional learning experiences to all of our children, so the children benefit from the strength that being part of the extended One Excellence family brings.
Our vision is to be an ambitious, inclusive, collaborative family of schools, ensuring excellence in education whilst celebrating individuality. We are passionate that as a family of schools we can provide a much better standard of education than working on our own. We know we improve more rapidly as a group of schools in a Trust than if we were a school on our own in an isolated position. This rapid improvement is not achieved at the expense of any school losing its own unique identity or its position within its community. Our academies have no motivation to all be the same. They are different in accomplishments and context but we share the same values and vision for our staff and students. Each academy is a driving force in its own right. By working collaboratively we’ve been able to create an effective and efficient organisation and business model that allows school leaders and teachers to focus all their attention on their pupils. We work together in a supportive network to evaluate, challenge and improve practice inside and outside of the classroom. We want our students to grow into fully equipped individuals who make meaningful contributions to society and our staff to reach their full professional potential.
We live in a world that requires our children to be prepared to think both critically and creatively, solve complex problems and to communicate well. Mastery of the basics: reading, writing and maths is our core purpose and this sits equal to ensuring our children have access to a high quality non-cognitive skills curriculum ensuring well-developed social and emotional skills.
We look forward to an exciting future for the trust and hope the information within the website is insightful and useful. Thank you for your interest in our Trust and that our vision inspires you to want to discover more.
