A home for schools
Sharing some of the load
Ultimately our Trust is a home for schools - a place where they can grow, without having to worry about their future sustainability.
Whether they manage a primary or secondary school, we want to ensure that headteachers can focus on the most important part of their job: teaching and learning.
We have a central team who provide core financial and HR services. And schools have the opportunity to buy in a range of enhanced services to make their lives easier - ranging from ICT and governance, to marketing communications and income generation.
Plus we have a central school improvement team, who work with schools to ensure their students achieve beyond their expectations.
Equal admissions status to an outstanding Sixth Form
We would like students at secondary schools within our Trust to also benefit from access to Silverdale Sixth Form on the same admissions basis as Silverdale students. As we grow, this would incorporate other Sixth Form providers within Chorus Education Trust. This will be subject to a consultation.
Providing they meet the admissions criteria, this would mean that students can join the most successful state school Sixth Form in Sheffield. In 2017 our students achieved 72% of their grades at A* to B.
Help shape our Trust
Schools that join our Trust get the opportunity to help shape it. Whilst our roots are in secondary schools, those primary schools who are on target to join us in the coming months are helping shape our primary offer.
We believe that by having a shared vision, ethos and strategic direction across our family of schools we can achieve positive outcomes for our students. And by working together on shared issues and challenges, we can learn from one another.
