About Transforming Lives Educational Trust
- Trust type
- Multi-academy trust
The Transforming Lives Educational Trust (TLET) was established in October 2016 and is a Charitable Trust and Company Limited by Guarantee. TLET grew out of a partnership between a high performing secondary school and primary school in Rugby, Warwickshire. The desire to work together arose from continuing population growth in the local community, our belief that we can shape and influence practice wider than our current schools, and the desire to provide the community with more high-quality school places. The Trust is set to grow over the coming years and currently comprises of two secondary-phase academies, Ashlawn School and Houlton School, and two primary-phase academies, Henry Hinde Infant School and Henry Hinde Junior School. Currently we are responsible for approximately 2400 children and young people and, along with the Trust’s Central team, 350 employees and £13m of public money annually.
