Today's Children; Tomorrow's Future

Our Mission & Vision > Welcome!


We are a highly enthusiastic, forward-looking multi academy trust based in East Grinstead, West Sussex.

The schools in our trust provide a stimulating and caring environment where we respect and value everyone. Through our passion and inspirational teaching, we aim to bring about a lifelong love of learning, leading to individual success. We are committed to a self-improving system, which focuses on ensuring our pupils – today’s children – are well prepared for tomorrow’s future.

Everything we do is driven by a philosophy of collaboration and shared leadership. We are committed to working in partnership with other schools and organisations in our community, to develop and share excellence.

Our management philosophy is to enable schools in our trust to maintain their own identity and distinctiveness, but provide essential support that they need through collaborative working and alignment of key policies and practices.

Our academy trust was created in September 2014 from the long established Grenestede Federation.  Both founding schools were inspected by Ofsted in summer 2017 and received “good” ratings, which cited the benefits of our collaborative approach.
