Welcome to The Mead Trust.

We are an organisation characterised by optimism, excellence and creativity. We love to share good practice and to learn from and challenge each other. We are inclusive, passionate, and principled. 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; The Mead at Hilperton, The Mead at Wingfield and Castle Mead School in Trowbridge, and River Mead School in Melksham.  Our schools work closely together and all staff are encouraged and supported to share best practice within a framework of decisive collaboration. 

Our schools benefit from a strong central infrastructure to enable them to concentrate on providing ‘Inspirational Learning for All’.  Our schools retain their individuality so that they can support their own communities effectively. 

Our Trust has a strong track record of school support and improvement and all of our schools are graded as Good. I am very proud to lead such a vibrant and aspirational group of schools and look forward to welcoming new staff and schools into our family.
