Brigantia Learning Trust

Welcome to the Brigantia Learning Trust.


An inclusive multiphase journey at the heart of our community

 Across the Trust, we pride ourselves on our close-knit community where we value every pupil and student as an individual, enabling us to drive their ambition, inspire their passions and teach innovatively and passionately, creating leaders within a rapidly changing world.

We operate five academies on six sites from a nursery infant, a junior, an all through, a secondary, to a post 16 college, with a community of close on 4,000 students and 500 staff.

Our core vision is to change and enhance life chances and secure social mobility and justice for young people in our community through a culture of care. We are dedicated to Creating Excellence Together and these words have been carefully chosen to reflect our commitment to continuous improvement and working together in partnership.

We create opportunities and enrichment within and beyond the classroom, so that every pupil and student is provided with a platform from which to succeed. We achieve this through:

  • A strong and shared moral purpose that underpins our work.
  • A vision that is coherent and a logical step for education in the area.
  • Effectiveness rooted in an understanding of the complex local context.
  • Leadership that is immensely strong, ambitious, and committed.
  • A clear operating model for partnership that focuses upon school improvement.
  • A proven track record of success including the transformation of vulnerable schools.
  • Immense staff capacity and expertise to drive improvement.

Within the Trust, our academies have continued to grow as centres of excellence; drawing upon a collective pool of expertise and resource. Our staff and Trustees work collaboratively to deliver the very best in traditional education with a forward-thinking approach, ensuring that every child and young adult in our care is prepared and well-equipped for the demands of a global and ever-changing society.

As pioneers of 2-19 education within Sheffield, we believe our offer truly sets us apart. Through orchestrated efficiency, development and innovation, every child and young adult benefits from a truly unique and bespoke approach to education. From their passions and personalities to their learning styles and ambitions, everything is taken into account to ensure a smooth and seamless transition throughout all the phases of their academy life and beyond.

Our strong leadership teams are ambitious and dedicated to driving improvement and securing the very best outcomes in each of our academies, through a commitment to excellence and unwavering values. If you want to find out more about becoming a Brigantia Learning Trust academy, please click here
