Tapton School Academy Trust


Future Plans

We are developing high quality local leadership that ensures the fit to local conditions and needs, within carefully constructed structures and approaches. At the same time we are committed to the development of high quality learning regionally and this outward face will help drive improvement at TSAT. We value our staff and are enabling them to become exceptional professionals through learning and development. Our teaching school, Tapton Teaching School Alliance, provides impactful learning to develop both leadership capacity and innovative approaches to teaching and learning. It also provides excellent opportunities for new entrants to the profession, development and deployment of strategic leaders in local and national education whilst also ensuring a hub for effective school to school support.

A key focus of our strategic plan is to provide a cost effective organisation and a business model that delivers efficiency, effectiveness and economies of scale in order to free up more resources for our learners in the challenging years ahead. A professionally led Executive team with a high level of business skills frees our Local Governors to focus on the outcomes of the Academy in their communities, whilst ensuring that we achieve best value for money and a sustainable, independent Trust that is financially viable and able to invest in innovation and growth.

As a Trust we are continually looking to improve and have now enhanced our Governance with the appointment of two new Members and two new Trustee Directors.

At our strategic away day in October 2018 we agreed our strategic objectives. The vision is:

  • Effective Schools
  • Outstanding Outcomes
  • Sustainable Trust
  • A Great Place to Work
