About Own Trust

Multi-academy trust
Phone number

OWN Trust is a small but growing multi-academy trust consisting of 3 primary schools in the centre of Peterborough. The Trust opened in March 2019 and due to expansion will reach in excess of 1300 children within the next two years.

All OWN schools are judged to be good by Ofsted. They use their success and expertise collaboratively to ensure the best possible provision for the children who attend. ‘Opportunity, Work Together, Nurture’ are the words that provide the driving force behind how the Trust operates and its beliefs and values. By working together as part of OWN, we are absolutely convinced that we can provide better opportunities and achieve so much more than by working in isolation. A core part of the OWN ethos is to nurture those within its community; caring for, encouraging and supporting each to be their very best.

 OWN also fosters OWNership. We recognise that schools are unique, with their own individual communities and needs. Each has its own identity and values, but all are fully committed to the core vision and mission of OWN Trust. A certain degree of autonomy supports each school’s need to maintain ownership of its values and daily life within a common purpose.
