Faringdon Learning Trust began life in 2012, when the three schools in the town – Faringdon Community College, Faringdon Infant School and Faringdon Junior School – formalised their close links by creating a multi-academy trust (MAT). In 2014, five other schools within the catchment of Faringdon Community College joined the trust.
All eight schools that currently make up the trust had previously worked together as part of the Faringdon Partnership. The trust was known as Faringdon Academy of Schools between 2012 and 2020, when it changed its name to Faringdon Learning Trust.
Westrop Primary and Nursery School signed up as an Alliance member in July 2022.
Stanford In The Vale Primary School signed up as an Alliance member in July 2022.
In September 2022, Faringdon Infant School and Faringdon Junior School became primary schools.
Faringdon Infant School is now called Folly View Primary School.
Faringdon Junior School is now called The Elms Primary School.
Folly View Primary School relocated to a brand new site in October 2022.
