Vision & Priorities

Our goal is to provide high quality education and deliver the best possible outcomes for children and young people. As a high quality regional trust with a national reputation for excellence, we expect all Spencer schools to work towards status as an ‘outstanding’ provider of education, and provide the support and resources used by academies to make a difference to the life chances of children and young people across the East Midlands.

The Spencer Academies Trust is an exceptional Trust, which provides an outstanding education for local children. We work collaboratively to achieve the best possible outcomes for all young people, in an environment where partnership is valued and success is celebrated. A Spencer education delivers real life experiences for students, promoting independent enquiry and intellectual curiosity. Children and young people are supported to develop a strong sense of individual responsibility, and to feel confident and proud of their achievements.

  • All children have a right to a quality education regardless of background or ability, and have an entitlement to the opportunity of a secure progression route in their learning and development.
  • Schools are stronger when they work in collaboration with each other, operate within a ‘family’ and are open to a true sense of partnership.
  • We grow the effectiveness and sustainability of our schools by developing the people within them, and believe that through shared and equitable responsibility for quality and outcomes, we achieve more.
