"Putting Children First"



"Welcome to The Praxis Trust a truly diverse trust currently encompassing three schools with a plan to grow. As a Trust we value educational success but also personal development to ensure our children are able to meet the needs of a diverse and multicultural society. We value the independent culture and ethos of the individual schools but supported under the umbrella of a strategic partnership to improve quality, share best practice and operate effectively and efficiently." 

Diane Beardsmore

Chair of Trustees

We believe that:

  • All children deserve the best education possible
  • Inspirational leadership is the expected norm
  • Children enjoy their education, and upon leaving are well prepared for their future life
  • Pupil’s experiences are widened through an enriched curriculum
  • All staff feel valued and supported and are developed to reach their full potential
  • Creativity and imaginative thinking is encouraged in all children and staff
  • Church schools retain and develop the Christian distinctiveness and character
  • Strong community engagement is encouraged

Our aspirational and measurable outcomes are:

  • Every lesson to be good or better
  • Every child is expected to make progress at least in line with, and for many above, national expectations
  • Every academy to be well led and governed
  • All teachers are motivated to self improve and aspire to excellence
