About our Trust
The Learning Community Trust is a well-established Trust with a great reputation locally and regionally, growing steadily and are very proud that since January 2021 two further schools have joined us.
We now have eight fantastic schools, well led by innovative principals, headteachers and leadership teams; all different but working brilliantly together to provide the best education for our children and young people. We have a superb team of teachers and support staff in each school who are committed to doing the very best for our children.
The Trust is also delighted to be an academy sponsor, and we currently sponsor two of our schools.
The Learning Community Trust is a Telford and Shropshire 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 and Shropshire, with schools from across all phases including three mainstream primaries with nurseries and three large secondaries (one of which is all-through) as well as two Special Schools. 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.
Our intention is to continue our growth over 2-3 years, and we already have several exciting projects in the planning stage.
