Welcome to the Wessex Learning Trust

From the Executive Headteacher, Mr Gavin Ball.

I am delighted to welcome you to the Wessex Learning Trust.

Our family of eight Academies here in the Cheddar Valley strive to offer a world class, 21st century education for all young people between the ages of 2 and 18, by providing outstanding learning opportunities and creating centres of educational excellence that meet the needs of all children.

We are passionate about providing the very best education for all the children in our Academies. Our ambition is that every student is helped to achieve their full potential so that they can make a positive contribution to our society and realise their lifetime ambitions.

Each individual Academy in the Wessex Learning Trust is encouraged to maintain its own distinctive ethos, be at the centre of their community and raise aspirations and achievement. This is achieved in two ways: firstly, through excellent teaching to inspire curiosity, unlock talents and realise potential; and secondly, by ensuring high quality care, guidance and support that ensures the personal development and welfare of each child.

By working together, we believe we can harness the talents of all our staff, share good practice between all our Academies and share resources that enable us to concentrate on delivering excellence in education.

Gavin Ball
