“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 both now and in the future.”Dr G. Eatough, CEO of the LCT


Welcome to the Learning Community Trust website – we hope you will be able to gain an insight into our aims and objectives through the documents and information presented here.

Our vision is very simple: To provide the best possible education for our children and young people.

We want our schools to be the first choice for parents . . . because they are great schools, because they are their local school, and because they serve the community they live in.

Our focus is to ensure children progress successfully through education, gaining the highest qualifications they can, but also becoming amazing young people who can communicate, have a great work ethic, and value others.

This is an exciting time for LCT. We are a well-established Trust with a great reputation locally and regionally.

We have six fantastic schools, well led by innovative principals, headteachers and leadership teams; all different but working brilliantly together to provide a great experience for children, students, and staff.

The Trust is also delighted to be an academy sponsor, and we currently sponsor two further schools.

Our intention is to grow steadily over 2-3 years, and we already have several exciting projects in the planning stage.

So what exactly is the LCT? It is a Telford based multi-academy Trust which was established in July 2017, with the backing of the Department for Education.

Our Trust serves the community of Telford, with schools from across all phases of education.

We provide wrap-around childcare and nurseries in our primary schools, we have three large secondary schools (one of which is all-through), and we also have a special school. In addition, we work in very close partnership with the local FE provider, Telford College.

The Trust is led by a very experienced and successful head, Dr Gill Eatough, who has been CEO since the Trust was formed.

We have an outstanding board of trustees with significant experience in education, as well as from the world of business and industry. Each academy has a governing body, and we have some exceptional governors supporting our schools.
