Shaw Education Trust’s motto, ‘We believe, You achieve’, is encompassed within everything we do; raising student aspirations, developing skills and providing a happy and safe environment for all.

We believe that every child should have the opportunity to be successful whatever their starting point. We pledge an unswerving commitment to improve, accelerate and enable ambitious life goals amongst all young people in our academies.

Our Trust’s collaborative approach enables us to draw on the expertise within our family of schools; having students at the heart of everything we do; and maximising learning opportunities for all.
