The Mowbray Education Trust is committed to ensuring that all of our young people get the best support and opportunities that we can give them.   Our Trust serves our communities through providing nurseries, primary and secondary schools that cater for children throughout their formative years.    We currently run one nursery and five schools: 4 primary and one secondary.  During 2017 we will also be welcoming another primary school, and opening a second nursery.   We are a community whose vision is that in every one of our settings the children come first.  We have high expectations of both our students, and those that teach them.   We recognise and cultivate the talent in our staff and work hard to put only the highest quality teachers in front of our children.   We pride ourselves in our determination to ensure that no child is left behind, and a have a strong and energetic team working to continually drive standards up.


Children First

Everything we do is focussed around ensuring that our young people get the very best support and opportunities we can give them.  They deserve nothing less, it's what we're here to do.


We make 6 promises:

  • The education of the children in our Trust will always be our priority
  • Through our high expectations of the children we serve we are investing in the future of our community
  • We want the children that come to our nurseries and schools to work hard, show resilience and enjoy their time with us
  • We will recruit and retain the best quality staff to ensure our children get the very best education possible
  • We will be transparent in everything we do
  • All children are important, we will always challenge them to be their best and no child will be left behind.

Our Trust has approximately 400 staff that are all committed to delivering the best possible opportunities for the young people in our organisations to flourish.

Every single person involved in our Trust is critical to our success, and we place no ego on position or title.  Everyone is as important, and is equally valued.

Our employees work is supported by the vision of the Members, and the strategy of the Trustees, and then under the daily encouragement of our Headteachers and with the support of our Central Team.
