Our aim is to provide exceptional opportunities for all to be aspirational and develop a passion and excitement for learning!  We will ensure our children, students and adults cultivate a strong self-belief so that they can flourish and develop into successful, well-rounded, self-respecting people.

Our 5 academies are as follows:

We also offer a fantastic Sixth Form provision for students aged between 16-19, and this is based at both The Stockwood and The Chalk Hills Academy. Within our Sixth Form provision is our Football Academy Pathway and brand-new Cricket Academy Pathway.

The Teaching Trust teacher training based at The Chalk Hills Academy and is offered to all our colleagues should they be successful.

 

Welcome from Cathy Barr, CEO at THE SHARED LEARNING TRUST


Thank you for your interest in our trust and academies and for taking the time to explore this exciting opportunity that we are excited to present to you.

I first began working for The Shared Learning Trust, as Principal of The Stockwood Park Academy. Since then, the trust has grown from strength to strength employing over 500 fantastic staff members who serve over 4,000 children within our communities. It is my privilege to be the CEO of our family of Academies and work with each Principal and Head of School to ensure the best possible education in their own academy.

Our ethos is simple; to build a collaborative partnership of academies that will provide exceptional educational provision, both in and outside the classroom for all our children.  Our academies ensure students are supported, monitored and encouraged to pursue their aspirations through a wide range of enrichment activities and initiatives. The experience will be challenging, rewarding and memorable.

Students enjoy their time at our academies and give back to the wider local community. They are role models and young leaders, who contribute to the collegiate ethos with maturity.

Recruiting the right teachers and staff help us to achieve the goals we set for our children. We are always keen to hear from educators who are passionate about working with the schools and communities we serve.

All five academies at The Shared Learning Trust are a part of our Teaching Trust, which is held at The Chalk Hills Academy. We aim to offer exceptional teacher training and high-quality professional development programmes to new and experienced staff to support them in excelling in their career. Our programmes are facilitated by experienced school leaders, who have exemplary records in leadership and improving outcomes for their students.  We are able to cater to specific requests and can offer custom-made support packages that focus on the quality of teaching and learning, curriculum development and aspects of Leadership and Management.
