Anthem Schools Trust

Our school is proud to be part of Anthem Schools Trust. Anthem is a multi-academy trust of 11 primary and five secondary schools in the East Midlands, London and the Thames Valley.

From Lincolnshire down through Oxfordshire, Berkshire and London, together we create ambitious and successful schools where every child thrives.

We are supported by Education Development Trust, an international education company that transforms lives by improving education around the world.

At Anthem we inspire, challenge and support our leaders and teachers to make every lesson count. We work collaboratively, sharing ‘what works’ in our teaching and learning practice and together making our schools the very best they can be.

Our approach is built on three values: integrity, collaboration and excellence. In practice, this means behaving with openness and honesty to build trust in everything we do. It means providing opportunities for our children and our adults to work together and learn from each other to ensure we are the best we can possibly be. It means being consistent and ambitious for excellence, in all its different forms.

These values inform our work to secure the highest possible standards in all aspects of school life.

A place to thrive

Academy governance

Anthem delegates certain responsibilities to a local governing body (LGB) through an agreed scheme of delegation.

The purpose of the LGB is to support Anthem in implementing its mission of advancing education for the public benefit by providing outstanding, sustainable education solutions that transform learning in schools and to be a link to the school community whilst providing challenge and support at a local level.

The LGB’s delegated responsibilities are sub divided into three core functions:

  • strategic improvement
  • support and challenge
  • communication and collaboration
