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.”
