Kingsbridge Educational Trust

Kingsbridge Educational Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust (a charitable company limited by guarantee, company number 09144847) with sponsorship accreditation from the Department for Education. At the moment the Trust operates four schools: Kents Hill Park all-through school, Monkston Primary School, Middleton Primary School and Oakgrove all-through school.

Vision, Ethos and Pedagogy

A multi-academy trust group of strong performing, like-minded schools who are dedicated to high standards of achievement for all pupils.

Each school has a unique ethos and identity and maximum devolution of decision-making, within a strong accountability structure. The Trust promotes a clear educational vision, ethos and direction and ensures the uniqueness of each Academy. The contribution each school makes to the Trust is recognised and valued.

Aims and Values

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.

The Trust will do this by ensuring each school:

  • Provides the very best in teaching and learning opportunities for every pupil
  • Has the highest expectations of what pupils can achieve
  • Promotes an ethos of high expectations, outstanding behaviour and care
  • Has an enriching and enabling, broad and balanced curricular and extra-curricular programme that supports outstanding personal development
  • Prepares and equips pupils well for the next stages of their school journey
  • Promotes and sustains the very best of British values, including fairness, equality, honesty, justice and service
  • Ensures pupils reach the highest possible standards in public examinations
  • Shares our vision, aims and values and actively promotes these


The Trust’s model is unique, in that it devolves maximum decision-making powers to local level and ensures each school retains its own identity and Local Governing Body (LGB). Apart from the requirement to have a Finance and Personnel Committee, LGBs determine their own committee structure.

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 teaching and learning.
