Our aim is to become a strong local partnership of schools.  Whilst we aim to build a strong and cohesive identity, we recognise that each school within the Trust has its own unique characteristics.  Collaboration and joint working ensure that all schools in the Trust can share in, and benefit from, each other’s strengths.  The aim as a multi academy trust is to work together to:

  1. Make a positive difference in the lives of our pupils;

  2. Have an unflinching commitment to closing the gap between high and low performers within the schools;

  3. Transform the learning conditions of others so that growth, commitment, engagement, and constant spawning of leadership in others is being fostered

The vision of the Berlesduna Academy Trust is to create and foster a culture of high aspiration, enjoyment for learning, academic success and lifelong skills amongst all pupils, regardless of their social, economic or cultural background.

Joining a group of local  like-minded schools will enable you to secure and maintain your current quality provision and through school to school support address those areas you identify as needing to improve to move your school to the next level.

If you are interested please contact us to begin a conversation.

Berlesduna Academy Trust Parent Survey - June 2019

Academy News

As communities in Essex continue to grow and develop, so does Berlesduna Academy Trust. Essex County Council is currently inviting invitations from Academy Sponsors to oversee the opening and running of a 2 form entry primary school in the new Lakelands Housing Development in Colchester.

Berlesduna prides itself on being an inclusive, forward-thinking education provider. Improving the opportunities, attainment, and life chances for the local Essex communities we serve is central to our vision. To this end, we are delighted to announce that we are submitting an application to run the Lakelands Primary School as part of our greater growth strategy for the future.

If our application is successful, we will be working closely with Essex County Council and the local community to ensure that the new 420 place primary school will open in September 2020, meeting the needs of the Lakelands development, and providing the community with a school it will be proud of.

Further updates will follow on this exciting opportunity.
