Perry Hall Multi-Academy Trust has a singular, clear and unwavering purpose: to improve outcomes for all children across our Trust regardless of their starting point in life.

We achieve this by delivering a world class education, by ensuring pupils perform above national expectations, by providing holistic support to our pupils and their families and by adding value to the pupil experience at every given opportunity.

We safeguard and protect all of our schools, providing a platform from which we can grow and succeed together.

Our ethos is to support, collaborate and empower our schools to succeed. We celebrate their individuality and cherish their respective identities. Every one of our schools is different, with unique challenges, opportunities and personalities. We recognise that as a strength and something to be celebrated.

School to school support and staff CPD is provided by the PHMAT Training and Development team and creates an environment wherein all our schools work together to prosper and share best practice. It also provides a number of opportunities for staff to enhance their careers and share their specialist knowledge to others who are able to benefit from it, resulting in better outcomes and experiences for our children.

By being part of our Trust, all of our schools benefit from being part of a like-minded family who are there to support each other through times both challenging and enriching.

Our children have access to a wider range of opportunities and our staff have the advantage of being able to focus on what’s really important – the teaching and learning and the education and experiences our children are receiving. All schools within the Trust share the same vision and values, which is ensuring that all pupils achieve the best possible outcomes, regardless of their starting points in life.
