Welcome from our Chief Executive

Our vision at The Tapscott Learning Trust is to empower children through education to support healthy lifestyles and to create joyful learning environments in order to set them on the path to happy, successful lives.

It’s a principle that has guided my teaching career from classroom through to headship and continues to underpin all that I do in my role as Chief Executive Officer.

Paul Harris
Chief Executive Officer

The Trust was founded by schools that benefitted from a history of working extremely successfully together before taking the decision to form a multi-academy trust.

And this experience provided us with a blueprint for how schools can work together, sharing and developing teaching and learning practice, while also providing opportunities to maximise resources and ensure effective professional development for staff within and outside our organisation to ensure that we not only deliver the best outcomes for our pupils, but also for our teams.

However, we are never complacent and are always looking for ways that we can further develop our offer to our pupils and adapt to meeting their needs to ensure that they are prepared and skilled to live life in our modern multicultural society.

In turn, our schools share a commitment to our key values which are:-
     ● Whole child education
     ● Love of learning
     ● Health
     ● Inclusivity
     ● Working together

We work as a collective, whilst leaving our schools free to harness their unique characteristics and make adaptations to best meet the needs of their communities.

Strong and effective governance is essential to the success of our trust and I am therefore confident that we have appointed a team of highly skilled Board of Trustees alongside the Local Advisory Boards of each school.

As CEO, I am honoured and very proud to lead this wonderful community and would welcome others who share our vision, with a desire to work in partnership, to please get in touch with us, as we really do believe that by working together we can achieve for all.

If you share our vision of outstanding education for all children, through developing effective partnerships and always striving for the best then please do get in touch with us.
