Anglian Learning is a highly successful charitable trust formed by academies who recognise the huge potential and benefits of coming together to form one larger group of schools.  Our members share the firm belief that successful learning communities are underpinned by ambitious vision, trust and strong inspirational leadership at all levels of the organisation; that excellence is not simply defined by Ofsted grades and league table positions; and that education can play a truly transformational role in the lives of children and contribute to the success and wellbeing of our wider society.


Anglian Learning’s four Core Values are Aspiration, Community, Empowerment and Inclusivity. These are the starting points of what we believe in. Everything we do, no matter our position in the Trust, should be informed by and reference these values

Our Core Purpose, why we exist as a Trust, is ‘Transforming Together to enable inclusive and aspirational learning in every classroom, empower leaders across every academy, and ensure inspiring opportunities and educational success for our learners, people and communities’.

The Core Vision is what we are aiming to achieve for the young people in our care; this is our aspiration for them. This vision defines what success will look like for our young people. It also applies to our colleagues, who are also learners. Our blueprints define this vision in detail.

Our Core Vision for Anglian Learning is for our learners to be dynamic and empowered – who thrive and lead in their communities: locally, nationally and globally.

To fulfil our purpose, values and visions, we will embed our Core Principles into everyday decisions. The six principles apply to every staff member, setting out our commitments as fellow members of Anglian Learning. They will be applied at all levels, but with context and help to form our decisions and shape how we act at school level, centrally and within our collective communities.

We will build an innovative partnership of academies, that excites, inspires and empowers our people to be the very best they can be, to have the confidence to think creatively, and embrace new challenges.

Through membership of Anglian Learning, our academies work with like-minded schools, leaders, teachers and all staff who are dedicated to ensuring that all of our academies can offer an excellent education to all pupils.  We believe in equality of opportunity, celebrating everyone’s differences and supporting learners of all abilities from all backgrounds.  Developing our staff is key to the success of Anglian Learning and we are committed to providing the best professional learning and training for all of our workforce, empowering colleagues to embrace new ideas and think creatively.

Through our long and illustrious history via the village colleges, which place a strong emphasis of community education, we can also claim with justification to be educating learners well into their 70s and 80s.  We also provide extensive support for young families via our locality links, and through our commitment to community health and wellbeing in our Sports Centres, and truly delivering cradle to grave opportunities.  We underpin our relationships with a culture of support, respect, and trust, recognising we are stronger together.

Whether you are a parent considering sending your child to one of our schools; a prospective member of staff looking for the first or next step in your career; or a school that may wish to become a part of the Anglian Learning story, please see our website to get a flavour of what we offer as a Trust.  We are ambitious for ourselves and all those in our community to be the best we can be.
