We are a Multi Academy Trust operating in the North East of England. It is the aim that every school in the Prince Regent Street Trust is at least a good school and, if not already an outstanding school, aspiring to become one.

Schools are invited to consider joining Prince Regent Street Trust to become an associate member. The trustees believe that this is an important part of the process for the Trust and prospective schools to decide their compatibility, especially in terms of their shared ethos, and consider the mutual benefits of the prospective school joining the Trust.

If you’d like to start a conversation about joining our Trust please get in touch with our Chief Executive Officer Julia Armstrong. We look forward to hearing from you.

Working Parties

We have extremely productive working parties which include staff from each school covering a broad range of areas they meet termly with the responsibility of chair rotating so that each school has a voice.  Throughout this collaborative working changes are made or new concepts introduced and these are regularly fed back to the Headteacher Board which meets fortnightly.

What it is like being a school within Prince Regent Street Trust

“Working collaboratively with school leaders across the Trust has galvanised school improvement; we have worked at pace to achieve high standards while retaining the unique identity of each of our schools. We share the same vision and values, putting the child at the heart of everything we do to ensure we offer the very best opportunities for all. Staff retention is very important to us and we pride ourselves on providing career development within the Trust.”

Claire Park, Head of School Hartburn Primary

“Working within the Trust has been a supportive and incredibly rewarding experience. As a trust, we discuss and share the latest research into pedagogy, which allows us to develop effective, responsive teaching and learning that fits the needs of all  learners. Furthermore, with Working Party Teams, subject leaders and class teachers meet regularly to improve attainment and analyse assessment trends. This network is incredibly supportive and provides an effective networking team. In Covid times, the trust has been invaluable with regular support in an ever-changing landscape.”
