About Venn Academy Trust

About us

The trust was formed in 2015 as a small but perfectly formed organisation of four schools. Since then, we have grown our family of schools across Yorkshire and the Humber region, with others interested in joining.

Venn comprises special, alternative provision and mainstream academies, including a hybrid/alternative provision free school.

Venn celebrates its uniqueness and all of our schools remain this way post conversion. We are proud that our schools have different curriculums and different ways of working; we support them to remain this way.

We have a strong track record of developing and improving schools; underpinned by effective central systems and school improvement strategies that lead to developing confident pupils who work hard, enjoy school and achieve significant positive outcomes.

Our expertise reflects our vision and together with local authorities, schools and community partnerships provide outstanding support. Venn is a pioneering academy trust, where all pupils are inspired to become lifelong learners to achieve the very highest standards possible. Collaborating with all partners, the trust works with its settings to create world class learning experiences for all.Trust Lead and Accounting Officer

The trust has substantial proven expertise in delivering outstanding provision. This has been achieved through high quality expertise, practice and training. We have created a positive behaviour culture with clear intent on the curriculum; reinforced by our effective implementation strategies leading to successful, positive outcomes.

In all our academies we ensure provision is pupil focused, effectively linked to an appropriate and challenging curricular, enabling them to make positive progress throughout their school years. Venn teaches pupils from birth to post sixteen and is recognised and acknowledged for its expertise in SEMH. Our trust board supports our local governing bodies to retain their structures delivering strategic outcomes for their schools.

If you are interested in becoming part of our family of schools, or accessing our training offers, please make contact.

Together we will…
