About The Partnership Trust

Multi-academy trust

Founded on the strong belief that with partnership and collaboration we can improve the outcomes for young people, The Partnership Trust is proud to be a diverse family of schools consisting of special schools, village schools, first schools and primary schools based in the city of Bath and beyond.

With origins lying in Fosse Way Special School, The Partnership Trust was formed in 2011 to enable close collaboration between schools across the area and was characterised by a diverse range of schools at different stages of their development journey. The Trust grew to include primary and first schools across the Bath and Frome area and the development of a new special school. In 2018, driven by a desire to build close collaboration between schools across the Bath and Mendip areas, The Partnership Trust joined with The Comenius Trust, a Trust formed in 2016 with a lead school of Weston All Saints Primary School, a large primary school in Bath.

The Partnership Trust is built upon the principles of equity, trust and respect, operating within a culture of shared challenge and support. As a Trust we do not seek to make all schools the same and celebrate each school’s unique characteristics, heritage and community. We are committed to providing an outstanding education for all of our pupils through an unrelenting focus on every child and their individual progress and attainment, pairing high quality teaching with the widest possible opportunities.

In order to enable each school to focus their time and resources on teaching, our role is to collaborate and support; provide strong and flexible shared services; put in place high quality school improvement and to have a robust, effective and transparent governance system. Each school retains oversight of their own day to day management but operates within the shared values and commonly agreed practices of the Trust.

With a firm belief that every employee no matter what their role, contributes towards the quality of the children’s learning experience, staff benefit from support from colleagues within the Trust as well as being encouraged, as part of an outward looking organisation, share experiences and good practice and maintain networks within and outside of the Trust.
