Welcome to Acorn Education Trust

Trust Welcome From Sara Edwards, CEO

I am very proud to be the CEO of Acorn Education Trust and to oversee the unique family of academies and nurseries who are working together to deliver a first class education.

Since its formation in 2014, Acorn Education Trust has grown to include two nurseries, fifteen primary and three secondary schools, providing education and opportunities for students, from 3 months to 19 years old. We pride ourselves on transforming education locally, with our schools/nurseries being at the heart of their local communities.

Our vision is to prepare young people for their world in their time. As CEO of Acorn Education Trust, I have the privilege to work with our board and teaching staff to provide the best education for all students in a rapidly changing educational landscape. Our staff work tirelessly to shape the culture and ethos of our schools/nurseries, so every individual feels valued and has the opportunity to contribute.

Each Acorn setting is equally important and we ensure the following core values are clearly visible:

Active and visible leadership

Care, Support and challenge

Opportunities for all

Readiness to reach out

Needs of all are paramount

By working collaboratively we’ve been able to create an effective and efficient organisation and business model that allows school/ nursery leaders and teachers to focus all their attention on the students. We work together in a supportive network to evaluate, challenge and improve practice inside and outside of the classroom. We want our students to grow into fully equipped individuals who make meaningful contributions to society and our staff to reach their full professional potential.

I look forward to an exciting future for the trust.

Warm regards,

Sara Edwards

"Since Acorn Education Trust has been working with Clarendon I have been overwhelmed with the support offered to the school and staff. The ‘personal touch’ makes them distinct from any other organization that I have worked with. The fact that the CEO comes into school and takes a genuine interest in staff is a testament to the friendly, collaborative ethos that Acorn Education Trust is committed to." 

Tom Nolan, Assistant Head Teacher Student welfare, Clarendon Academy

"I have been teaching at Keevil School for two years and I could not ask for a better school to teach at! Becoming a teacher was a long-held goal of mine after being inspired at a young age by my own teachers. Since starting work at Keevil School I have never felt so motivated and enthused to teach. Acorn Education Trust embodies what it means to be a Multi Academy Trust where they unite under a mission that is carried out in every day and where staff are made to feel supported and equipped in their efforts to change young people’s lives. I couldn’t think of a greater privilege than helping the next generation to go forward in their lives feeling valued and to help open doors for all children. Where better to do that than with a group of professionals that do that for you."

Emma Mortimer, Class Teacher, Keevil Academy 

"I have worked in two of the Acorn Education Trust schools and have increased my working week from part time to full time, as I am enjoying the opportunities that I’m being given so much.

I am currently working as Early Years Lead at New Close Primary School. I have been given the opportunity to open a nursery within the school and to teach the nursery aged children alongside Reception age children. This is so exciting and rewarding. Such wonderful learning is taking place.

Working in a single form entry primary school can be a lonely experience as there is no one else teaching the same year group to bounce ideas off. However, I am able to attend Acorn Education Trust meetings with the Early Years’ teachers from all the Trust schools. This is a huge support and helps us all to reflect on our teaching and learn from one another.

The Trust has been hugely supportive in helping me to develop my teaching and giving me opportunities to progress."

Charis Turner, Early Years Lead, New Close Primary School
