History of the trust

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.

Faringdon Infant, Junior and Community College join together in 2012 to create Faringdon Academy of Schools.

FAoS grows when five local primary schools join the trust these include, Shrivenham, Longcot & Fernham, Watchfield, John Blandy and Buckland.

In September 2019, the trust creates an Alliance membership and is delighted that Ashbury, Longworth and Shellingford join.

In September 2019 the trust creates its Centre for Professional Excellence. 

Uffington Primary School signs up as an Alliance member in December 2019.

In September 2020, FAoS changes its name to Faringdon Learning Trust and reveals its new website.
