The Priory Learning Trust

The Priory Learning Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust of primary and secondary schools – and in time (we hope) special schools. This will add real inclusivity to our Trust.

The PLT grew from a passion to bring the power of partnership and sharing to bear and provide a first-class education to a wide range of children, of all abilities and social class groupings, in WSM and especially in North Worle.

We believe that this approach will create happy, confident, and high-achieving students. This truly collaborative approach will also develop great staff relationships and improve staff wellbeing. It will healthy challenge and healthy competition.

The Priory Learning Trust will:

  • Support the aspirations of young people and their ambitions for their future success.
  • Contribute to producing aspirational, well-rounded, confident and active citizens.
  • Offer a broad range of qualifications.
  • Be inspirational learning centres offering exceptional education.
  • Combine, share and utilise the highest academic standards and levels of expertise across our academies and partners to design and develop an innovative and inspiring curriculum – learning is at the centre of what we do
  • Provide a strong duty of care to nurture and support students' wellbeing and self-esteem.
  • Maintain the unique nature of all of the schools within the Trust.
  • Give Academy Councils the freedoms to focus on the challenge and support for the improvements in teaching, learning and the curriculum.
