Kingsbridge Educational Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust (a charitable company limited by guarantee, company number 09144847) with sponsorship accreditation from the DfE. At the moment it operates four schools: Kents Hill Park School, Oakgrove all-through school, Monkston Primary School and Middleton Primary school.
A multi-academy trust group of strong performing, like-minded schools dedicated to high standards of achievement for all students. Each school will have a unique ethos and identity and maximum devolution of decision-making within a strong accountability structure. The Trust will promote a clear educational vision, ethos and direction and ensure the uniqueness of each Academy, and the contribution it makes to the Trust, is recognised.
To ensure outstanding learning opportunities are provided for each and every child regardless of age, gender, need, faith or background. To enrich lives socially, culturally, morally and spiritually and to ensure all children can take their place in a forward-thinking enlightened democracy.
We will do this by ensuring each school in the Trust:
Our model is unique in that we devolve maximum decision-making powers to local level and want to ensure each school retains its own identity, flavour and personality. Local Governing Bodies, apart from the requirement to have a Finance and Personnel Committee, are free to set up whatever committee structure they see fit. The Board of Directors retains an oversight function, especially as regards finance, outcomes and safeguarding but responsibility is delegated to the individual Governing Bodies. The Trust, however, has a level of expertise that individual schools can draw upon and offers an unrivalled opportunity to share best practice and school improvement strategies for the benefit of all children. It also enables cost-efficient, expert centrally-run services to be provided to schools enabling them to concentrate on the teaching and learning.
