About Waterton Academy Trust

Waterton Academy Trust was established in July 2014, with Walton Primary Academy being the founding member. Over the last ten years, the trust has grown appropriately and strategically, not only in size, but also in the diversity of offer. By the end of 2024, the trust is projected to achieve a milestone with over 4,000 pupils enrolled, a team of more than 550 staff members, and a turnover in the region of £23million.

The trust operates across two key partnership areas, Barnsley, and Wakefield, and we believe is looked upon as a strong organisation and a valued and constant collaborator within the system.

All our schools fall into the primary age range bracket. They are geographically organised to promote opportunities to engage in hub activities, staff collaboration and afford leaders the ability to support, scrutinise and challenge at a more nuanced level.

An innovative approach to supporting our LA partners in Barnsley has resulted in the trust opening our first independent special academy in September 2023. Early indications are that these developments have been a great success, adding much needed capacity to the local offer and strengthening our relationships with LA partners.

In order to support our communities and ensure that our children get the best of starts to their education journeys, the trust has now opened four pre-school settings and has plans to open more in the coming years. We also have one new school in the process of joining the trust – Kings Oak Primary Learning Centre.
