Robin Hood Multi Academy Trust has a strong history of being at the cutting edge of education through the use of innovative practices such as Mandarin (we have regular visits to Beijing No2 Experimental school), 3D printing, robotics, coaching, creative PE and other exciting learning opportunities. Within each academy we have a growth mindset philosophy and our children have a strong moral purpose, they are prepared to push the boundaries of what is possible. Education is so much more than Maths and English and within our academies we promote independent learning, mastery in all subjects and the love of the arts.
