About Us

Our Mission

To enhance the life chances of all young people through Excellence in Education

Royal Wootton Bassett Academy Trust (RWBAT) was set up as a Multi Academy Trust in May 2017. In establishing RWBAT, we committed to offering strategic leadership and management expertise to facilitate collaboration and commitment leading to high levels of school improvement opportunities in each Academy within RWBAT.

RWBAT became Ascend Learning Trust in September 2022 to better reflect our growing Trust.

Our roles in leading Ascend Learning Trust are based on the simple premise of seeking to maximise the life chances of every pupil within the Trust. We believe this can be achieved by sharing leadership principles and management processes through support and challenge. We ensure staff and pupils are equipped to deliver the highest levels of performance in each Academy which leads to high levels of attainment and achievement across the Trust.

Our Vision and Values


Our Trust exists to ensure that the staff, pupils and parents from each Academy are able to benefit from Excellence in Education across the Trust through:

  • Compassion, Respect and Ambition – ensuring we become the best versions of ourselves and always strive to improve regardless of starting points;
  • Building the whole person equally to maximising their academic achievement – we seek to produce strong, confident, independent learners who contribute positively to society:
  • Placing schools at the heart of their communities – ensuring children learn about the importance of family, compassion, tolerance and the needs of others through working with our communities.


The overall aim of Ascend Learning Trust is to deliver school improvements and associated outcomes for all the Academies within the Trust.

Success for each Academy will be achieved through delivering on key objectives;

  • Ensuring all young people achieve better than expected outcomes
  • Ensuring we maximise the potential of all staff through support and challenge
  • Providing the best and safest environment
  • Providing the best central support services possible
  • Providing effective leadership and management at all levels
