About the schools

Trust type
Multi-academy trust

Thank you for your interest in this role within Mercia Learning Trust.
Mercia Learning Trust is a highly successful partnership of 3 primary and 3 secondary schools located in the south west of Sheffield. We are proud that overall effectiveness, outcomes and improvement trends are amongst the strongest on any trust in the country.

Our Trust is based on a deep and shared moral purpose. We believe an exceptional education can realise the potential of every student, whatever their background, and truly transform lives...

Working as individual schools, and in deep partnership, our singular intention is to ensure every student, whatever their background, will attend an exceptional school. We believe students should enjoy school, feel safe and fully supported, be inspired to learn, develop character and aspiration, and realise their full potential. We are so committed to student success and well-being that we choose to think of every student we serve as if they were our own, and to measure our actions and impact against this.

Our Trust has a mature definition of partnership which we call aligned autonomy. We share the same mission, values and moral purpose, have an increasing amount of common best practice (often backed by research), and benefit from our combined resources and reputation. Nevertheless, we understand that schools are unique and
are best led by leaders and staff who feel fully accountable and are able to individually innovate in the light of their context. This balance between difference, sharing and commonality is what drives improvement and lies at the heart of our Trust.

Alongside our students, our staff are our greatest asset. As such we are deeply committed to recruiting, developing, retaining and caring for our exceptionally talented and committed staff teams.

This commitment is enshrined in the Mercia Pledge which is designed to
ensure our staff get the very best professional experience and support on offer anywhere. The Mercia Learning Alliance sits at the centre of this strategy, alongside that to recruit new teachers into the profession, and support system leadership across the sector.

In a short period, our Trust has achieved a great deal. However, we are ambitious and forward-thinking, and fully committed to maintaining and improving student experience and outcomes, and further improving our Trust.

We also believe we are well-placed to engage in careful and sustainable growth in the light of our Trust mission and priorities.
