WHO WE ARE

The Eden Learning Trust is a newly established Multi Academy Trust based in South West Durham. Its aim is to provide the strongest possible education opportunities, in an environment where every one of our children really matters. Our banner of ‘Achievement for all’ is testament to this aim and has supported the founding schools in good stead over the past 5 years.

Mr Brennan, CEO said “As a Trust we will be defined by our ambition for our students, our warmth and our approachability as well as our drive to help in each other though collaboration and mutual support.”

TRUST ETHOS

Our ethos is one of partnership and collective responsibility. The founding schools have developed a truly collaborative model for the Trust Board and Head teacher Boards, supported by independent financial, legal and business experts. This has allowed individual schools to be integrated into key decisions and in control of the MAT direction and destiny.

Within Eden, schools retain their identity, their ways of working, but gain new friends and partners. Collaboration and intra-school support are our mantra, working collectively for the best interests of our students.
