Maritime Academy Trust has set its strategy around ensuring that every child in Maritime thrives, irrespective of their background. This has resulted in an innovative programme of family and community partnership emerging across the schools in the Maritime Academy Trust. Early programmes include:
A 0-3 years offer in Bligh School to ensure every child is getting the best start
Our Maritime Skills Academy which is providing free extracurricular activities including drama, multi-sports and coding every Saturday at Greenacres School
Our community and family engagement work which is bringing our families and schools together in a range of exciting ways.
