Leeds Diocesan Learning Trust (LDLT) was founded in September 2022 with the aim of bringing together schools sharing our vision of full flourishing through loving, living and learning together. As a Diocesan Trust, LDLT is an important part of the Diocese of Leeds vision for education and was established by the Leeds Diocesan Board of Education to provide high-quality services, challenge and support to an increasing number of Church Schools within the diocese looking to take on academy status. As an inclusive Trust, LDLT is also established to be a home for non-Church Schools who are looking for a secure and nurturing environment, ensuring their distinctiveness is also safeguarded.

The Trust will have grown rapidly to 14 schools by the end of 2024. Growth has taken place around three distinct geographical locations: Craven, Leeds, and Ripon with all schools being within the Primary phase. The Trust, responding to diocesan need, will seek to grow in these three specific geographies over the next five years and to also establish other clusters where demand dictates.

LDLT has a distinctive offer to schools considering joining a Multi Academy Trust. The scheme of delegation allows schools to maintain their unique character whilst benefitting from strong and dynamic collaboration across the schools in the Trust. LDLT is explicitly Church of England in its articulation, yet fully inclusive. It strives to ensure the flourishing of all children and adults, including children from the most disadvantaged backgrounds, so every child is given the chance to achieve their full potential. LDLT’s small, dedicated central team has a strong focus on school improvement through collaborative working across peer network groups and other mechanisms to provide a real benefit to schools.
