Our schools are funded by the DfE and sponsored by The Skinners’ School, a grammar school for boys together with the Skinners’ Company, one of the ‘Great Twelve’ livery companies of the City of London.

Our Trust is founded on the principles of a commitment to ensuring high standards and high aspirations, of active participation, an emotionally rich learning environment and an inclusive culture where every child is known, and every learner supported.

Their professionalism and dedication will enable our students and pupils to achieve more than they believe possible.

They will work as part of an outstanding team of Teaching Assistants and will be committed to ensuring Quality First Teaching and Learning.

The Inclusion team has a wide-ranging responsibility across the Academy Trust for the progress and wellbeing of key groups including those with Special Educational Needs, those with English as an Additional Language, Vulnerable students, Free School meal students and Most Able and Talented students.
