Leigh Academies Trust (LAT) has gone from strength to strength since its creation in 2008 and is now 1 of the country’s most successful multi-academy trusts.
Through a model of education that creates a network of inspirational and inclusive academies that share the same values, the Trust provides the drive for outstanding educational improvement and dynamic transformation.
All of the academies work closely and collaboratively together, along with our partners, seeking to exploit the key educational philosophy of human scale education. To maximise the levels of achievement across each of our learning communities, all activities are focused on improving the life chances of the young people in our care.
Educating around 8 000 students, the Trust is developing 3 ‘clusters’ of academies:
— North West Kent;
— Central Kent and
— South East London.
The Trust is committed to seeking and creating new initiatives that allow all learners the opportunity to achieve the very best outcomes. This has recently seen the widespread adoption of mobile devices as a learning tool across academies, both primary and secondary. LAT has become a world leader in the use of such technology. LAT also leads Kent and Medway Training which trains nearly 100 new teachers per year and is a member of the New Horizons Teaching Schools Alliance.
