The schools within the trust are diverse and range from village Church of England primary schools to a large secondary school. Our schools are all currently located within the same geographical area. This, combined with our effective remote working practices, makes for highly successful support and collaboration.

Alliance schools are not formally part of the trust. They can attend academy leadership team meetings, have access to headteacher leadership training and the central team for support and advice, and can attend professional development courses provided by the trust.

Alliance school pupils can take part in trust-wide activities led by the curriculum enrichment leader.
