Flying High Trust Partnership

The Flying High Trust is a primary schools’ multi-academy trust which was founded in June 2012 on the success of the Cotgrave Candleby Lane Primary School (the original trust member).

The ethos behind the Trust is one of sustainable school improvement; and schools joining the Trust do so with the prime aim of improving each other so that they can all become outstanding schools.

All schools within the Trust have access to the professional expertise and development opportunities offered by the Candleby Lane Teaching School Alliance which comprises over 40 primary schools. This ever growing alliance also ensures that Trust partners have access to bespoke leadership development opportunities, as the alliance has been awarded the National College licence for leadership programme delivery across the East Midlands.
