About Us

Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to visit to the Learning Community Trust website. We hope you will be able to gain an insight into our ethos, aims and objectives through the information and documents presented here.

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

We want our mainstream 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.

For our Special Schools we are determined that our schools meet the individual needs of our children and young people, so they are happy, really enjoy school and make the best possible progress in our care.

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

"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

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

So, what exactly is the LCT? It 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.

If you would like more information on the LCT, please contact Mrs Rachel Moore, PA to the CEO, by email rachel.moore1@taw.org.uk or by telephone 01952 387010.

kind regards,


Dr. Gill Eatough
