Why does Cheviot Learning Trust exist?

Our core purpose is to advance education for the public benefit. We believe that each school in the Trust family has unique qualities to share and unique challenges to be resolved. Deep collaboration is a key Trust expectation that helps us to deliver significant benefits for the students, the staff and the schools that form the Trust. Each school is stronger in the Trust family; delivering a better education for the public good than if they were outside the Trust.

What are the Trust Values?

Everything we do is based around the values that we hold dear:

– Innovation: We’re here to shape the future, which is why we all have a responsibility to be thinking about the big issues of tomorrow.

– Cooperation: We nurture the relationships that we’ve built over many years and we know by working together we can achieve more than we can alone.

 – Respect: We take the time to understand and make decisions and have due regard for the feelings, wishes and rights of others.

– Excellence: We will always strive for continuous improvement and will produce the best solutions and deliver the best services possible.
