About the Academy & Cabot Learning Federation
The Cabot Learning Federation is a diverse Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) in the South West. We currently sponsor eight secondary academies, nine primary academies, an all through provision, a studio school, a discrete Post 16 provision and an alternative provision which consists of one primary and three secondary phases. CLF is an Equal Opportunity Employer. The trust is proud to serve a diverse student population and their communities. We actively encourage applications from underrepresented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion. We are proud to be part of a vibrant community and celebrate the richness of cultures, faiths and backgrounds of our students. We aim to develop a curriculum that is responsive to our pupils needs and reflects their diverse interests and backgrounds.
King’s Oak Academy has been part of the Cabot Learning Federation since 2011 and has benefited from being part of a medium-sized, mature MAT with access to excellent professional services and opportunities to work in collaboration with a group of experienced leaders across the trust. In September 2021, King’s Oak reached both its 100th anniversary and full all-through status, with children learning in every year group from Reception to Year 11. Both were significant milestones for our school and we thanked our local community for their long term support, commitment and loyalty. King’s Oak benefits from a large and well situated site within easy commuting distance of the cities of Bristol and Bath. The academy has become increasingly popular with parents and the community, with rising numbers in Year 7 for September 2021.
