The board meets regularly and all schools in the trust are held to account for their performance against pre-agreed key performance indicators. The philosophies that underpin the trust are those based on partnership and collaboration. We want to ensure that all children receive a first class education and that the professionals working in our schools are well equipped to deliver this. We believe that the best way to achieve this is by working together in an open and honest culture, where no stone is left unturned in our quest to deliver an outstanding provision to the children across the trust.
As the Trust expands, we aim to have our schools grouped together in clusters of around five academies. These clusters are arranged according to both strategic and geographical areas. Clusters provide strategic partnerships to facilitate and deliver our core purpose of ensuring outstanding outcomes for pupils and students.
The Trust has initially established three clusters – Epsom, Chertsey, Addlestone & Staines (‘CAS’) and Woking. In the future, we will build a new cluster in Hampshire to include Everest Community Academy. The schools are currently grouped as follows:
Auriol Junior School
Epsom and Ewell High School
Meadow Primary School
West Ewell Primary School
Woodmansterne Primary School
Chertsey High School
Jubilee High School
Pyrcroft Grange Primary School
Sayes Court Primary School
The Matthew Arnold School
Broadmere Primary School
Brookwood Primary School
Everest Community Academy
New Monument Primary School
Sythwood Primary School
The executive leaders for the clusters are Gayle Jenkins and Steve Price.
