How We Work

On the 1st June 2018, the six founding schools celebrated the opening of Empower Multi Academy Trust, a values-led multi-academy trust based on shared vision and principles, placing the wellbeing of children and staff at the centre. Just 3 months later, we welcomed our seventh school and the foundation of our family of schools was established.


We believe we have an opportunity to forge our own future and create a local education system based on our commitment and belief that together we can achieve more for our children.

Within a challenging national education system in which budgets are tight, support for school improvement is diminishing or increasingly costly, yet the drive for better outcomes or to maintain them remains relentless, working in close collaboration with a group of like-minded schools is vital.

Empower Trust is a network of unique and diverse church and community schools dedicated to ensuring the provision of an outstanding education for every child within the Trust. We believe that education needs to be exciting and motivational. We champion a collaborative approach to school improvement and develop and promote innovative and dynamic approaches to learning, combining levels of expertise across our academies.

Our mission is to ensure that we give every child the very best education possible – socially, morally and academically. We aim to support all children to become successful learners and to develop into young people of whom the family, academy and community can be proud.


Although schools work closely to share effective practice, we also celebrate the fact that every school is different, working with Local Governing Bodies to ensure that each school retains their unique ethos and character.


Schools within Empower Trust demonstrate the courage to innovate and empower every member of the school community to play their part in developing learning experiences.
