“Our vision is to provide an outstanding education for all of our children and young people that prepares them to be successful in all they do”Dr G. Eatough, Executive Principal and CEO of the LCT

What is the Learning Community Trust?

The Learning Community Trust was established in June 2017, following approvals by the DfE, to create a Multi-Academy Trust in North Telford based at the highly successful Hadley Learning Community (HLC). The Trust has also been approved as an academy sponsor, by the DfE, as part of the application process.

The vision for our Trust is to provide the highest quality of education and care for young people across our community with academies working in close partnership. The Trust will operate from the HLC campus and is determined to drive school improvement across the Trust and ensure the best possible outcomes for our children and students. The intention is to steadily grow the Trust over the next two years with further secondary and primary schools.

The Trust is led by a very experienced and successful Head, Dr Gill Eatough who has been appointed as Executive Principal and CEO of the Trust.

This is a very exciting time for the Trust as our first schools have converted and joined the Trust. We have an outstanding Trust Board of ten Directors with significant experience in education, focussed on school improvement, as well as Trustees from the world of industry and business.
