OUR PURPOSE AS A Multi-Academy Trust

  • To enable all children and young people in ALT Academies to leave our schools having achieved well, strengthened by the values and aspirations of the ALT and well prepared to face the next challenge in their learning, personal and social development.
  • To enable schools to work together, share expertise and maximise efficiency and effectiveness across the MAT.


Every academy within the trust will have shared values and ethos whilst being committed to the overarching principle of “Being the best we can be”, the mission statement of Areté Learning Trust (ALT), which underpins the work of all trust academies.  This is rooted in the shared belief that every child, whatever his or her circumstances and starting point, has unique skills and qualities and given the support, encouragement, opportunity and challenge to achieve, can do so.  It is the commitment of the company to create a context for all children and young people to thrive, academically, personally and socially, so that they experience the real joy of learning, and all have an opportunity to succeed through collaboration between the schools within the trust and with all stakeholders.


Our Board of Directors agreed the following in July 2019, and reaffirmed this commitment in August 2021:

  • a joined up approach to cross-phase learning to maximise students’ progress and success
  • securing quality of service by sustained and measured growth, in terms of area and resource
  • securing cost-effectiveness in all business activity, to enhance provision for all students
  • serving inclusively the local community of ALT academies
  • accepting, as a sponsor, the broader moral responsibility for improving schools in need of support
  • the principle of partnership between the primary and secondary phase
  • the aspiration of “being the best we can be” for all children and young people in ALT academies
  • deep and sustainable collaboration to secure the best possible outcomes for students, whatever their circumstances or starting point
