Inclusive. Passionate. Principled.

CEO's Welcome

We are an organisation characterised by optimism, excellence and creativity. We have expectations of excellence in all that we do – seeking a ‘golden thread’ through each of the many aspects of our work.

Our Trust is currently comprised of three schools across four sites in Wiltshire. Kindness, curiosity and courage are at the heart of the Trust. We hold children at the heart of every decision we make.

Potential merger

Following a series of meetings involving Paul Skipp (CEO of Equa MAT), Lyssy Bolton (CEO of The Mead Trust) and both Trust Boards, there has been an agreement in principle to explore a potential merger of the two trusts.

We believe there is considerable synergy between our Trusts; discussions are at an early stage and in due course there will be a consultation open to all stakeholders.

Join us
