Welcome From The CEO

Welcome to our federation.

In 2019 the CLF celebrated 10 years as a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). In the course of that time our federation has developed from a small Bristol-based secondary education partnership to an instinctively collaborative ambitious organisation of over 20 entities, serving the educational needs of 11,000 children and young people aged 3 to 19.

Our federation is sponsored by the University of the West of England and Rolls-Royce PLC. Our academies are based in three 3-19 clusters in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.

We employ around 1,900 people in a range of roles designed to help children to be successful in their lives. We also rely on the time and commitment of over 200 volunteer governors, who share our values and ambitions for our schools and our pupils. These are expressed in both our core purpose (adjacent) and our mission;

To consistently deliver excellent educational experiences for pupils aged 3-19, improving their life chances and serving the communities of which we are a member.

While we are based in the South West, as a mature MAT we participate in a range of local, regional and national networks that are designed to support the broader development of education sector for the benefit of all children.

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about us.

Our History

In September 2007 John Cabot Academy became the education sponsor for the newly converted Bristol Brunel Academy. The Cabot Learning Federation was then established as a single trust in September 2009 when Bristol Metropolitan Academy joined.

In 2011, we added two more academies to our family when Hans Price Academy in Weston-super-Mare and King’s Oak Academy in Kingswood, Bristol joined us. In September 2012, our family continued to grow with five new arrivals. Bath Community Academy joined as our sixth secondary academy and four primary schools in Bristol meant that for the first time we educated students from the ages of 3-19. We were subsequently joined by Wallscourt Farm Academy (2013), Hanham Woods Academy (2014) and Digitech Studio School (2015).

Our primary academy partners are Begbrook Primary, Minerva Primary, Frome Vale, Summerhill and Wallscourt Farm Academies. In September 2014, Hanham Woods Academy joined us followed by Digitech Studio School Bristol which opened in September 2015. King’s Oak Academy changed from being a secondary academy to all-through in September 2015, welcoming its first cohort of Reception children. In June 2016 City Academy Bristol joined our family and in September 2016 the range of provision increased with the opening of Haywood Village Academy in Weston-super-mare, our first primary academy in North Somerset.

In the Federation we believe that students come first and that every child can find a route to happiness, prosperity and success. The Federation was created to enable staff to work more closely together to deliver the best education possible for the pupils who attend our academies. We are proud of the improvements we have seen in exam results and more of our students than ever before, now have qualifications that stand comparison with other young people across the South West. This has enabled us to develop a federation Post 16 with over 500 students staying in full time education after their GCSE courses have finished.

CLF became a Teaching School in 2011 and a Maths Hub in 2014. These designations formed the basis of what is now the CLF Institute, an overarching hub for training and research, allowing us to share more strategies and ideas to raise the quality of education for the children in our academies. In September 2016 we will be opening a School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) provision, where we will train and accredit teachers for both our academies and the wider education sector in the South West.

Working for Us

Here at the Cabot Learning Federation (CLF), we like to celebrate. We celebrate exam results, collaboration, achievement, innovations and new ideas; we celebrate the determination of our students; we celebrate the amazing role played by staff; and we celebrate the efforts and successes of our team. We celebrate the small achievements and the big. But far from being self-congratulatory, we are always looking to learn, to improve education and to make a positive difference for students and their families. And that's where you come in.  

At the CLF, we value your experience, skills, expertise and ideas. We expect you to help us to be the very best education provider, and in return we will listen and support you to take your career in whichever direction you choose. With the CLF you can be a leader, find solutions, become an expert, close the gaps and inspire and influence. 

The range of roles and opportunities in the CLF is as diverse as the communities we serve. Or you may simply want to fulfill your defined role to the very best of your abilities. Whatever our individual aspirations, together we make education real every day, in a very individual sense for each student. We learn each day from colleagues, students, families and local communities and we embrace our values and take pride in our work.

Our Mission and Vision

Mission

Empowering Learning: to consistently deliver excellent educational experiences for pupils aged 3-19, improving their life chances and serving the communities of which we are a member.

Vision

The core purpose of the CLF is at the HEART of all we do. Our vision is simple: we believe that by working together rather than in isolation we can accelerate school improvement and embed excellence in our academies. In doing so, together we can create more opportunities for the lifelong success for our students as they become young adults.

The fundamental mission of the CLF is that its work will bear the hallmarks of excellence in all that it does by 2020. In uncertain times it is through the ubiquitous culture of excellence and the highest standards in all aspects of its work that the CLF will be best placed to respond to the needs of its stakeholders in the period up to 2020 and beyond.

There are elements of the Cabot Learning Federation that make it unique. The combination of the tight geographical concentration of its constituent parts, the diversity of the communities it serves and the range of provision it offers to pupils, staff and governors. It is one of the largest and most mature Multi Academy Trusts (MATs) in the South West, and though it is not one of the larger MATs in the country, it commands a reputation as a leading MAT on the national stage.

For those most closely associated with the CLF, the key binding agent is its deep-rooted moral purpose. The collaborative culture, which is the fundamental agent of accelerated improvement in the CLF, is able to exist because of the shared commitment of all involved in the federation to all of the pupils attending our schools. The federation exists in order to promote their life chances and to deliver excellent educational experiences for those pupils in our academies now and in the future.
