The Chiltern Learning Trust is a multi-academy trust currently comprising of Denbigh High School, Challney High School for Boys and Dallow Primary School. It seeks to promote and celebrate the individual and collective achievements of all the Schools by providing the very best education and qualifications for our learners in a pleasant, happy and caring academic environment.
The Trust is led by a Board of Directors which consists of representatives from all 3 Schools with Dame Yasmin Bevan as Chief Executive. The members of the board and trustees have extensive experience of education and corporate governance and a shared desire for high standards and excellence in all that they do. Each School also has its own local governing body.
Although each School retains its individual identity and history, the desire for excellence and high achievement for all learners, regardless of their background or ability, is the common underpinning feature of all three Schools. The Schools work together, using our very best teachers and leaders to raise the outcomes and opportunities for every child, sharing best practice and expertise amongst staff to raise participation and narrow gaps in achievement. Developing excellent attitudes to learning in its widest sense and fostering respect, courtesy, consideration and friendship are also central to the ethos of our School communities. The Schools also work extensively with other Trusts locally and nationally through the Chiltern Teaching Trust Alliance and Challenge Partners, a national Trust improvement network.
The practicalities of the Trust arrangement also enable us to retain a strong central team of specialists with expertise in finance, marketing, facilities management, staff training and development, technology for learning and human resources, helping to ensure that the outstanding quality of teaching and learning is mirrored in the day-to-day running of the Schools.
The Chiltern Learning Trust is looking to procure a firm of competent and capable Multi-Functional Device providers who are able to ensure that the Trust are able to efficiently and effectively print, reproduce and manage their materials.
