How we work

What we offer

We are committed to every school having an input in the development and growth of the Trust. Our Trust actively encourages Heads of Schools to retain their focus on the core business of learning and teaching, raising standards, and achieving improved outcomes for pupils. 

 We offer support and guidance and opportunities for cross-Trust working and development to enhance School improvement.  Our Executive Head had a proven track record of supporting schools both in and out of King Alfred Trust in her role as an NLE (National Leader of Education). As part of our Trust you will benefit from the access to an excellent SENCO and Pastoral Team,  providing greater support than you would ordinarily have available in a single school.  

As part of our commitment to financial sustainability, we also provide a centralised Business & Admin support Team.
One of our strategic outcomes is sustainable growth. As part of this we provide a centralised Business and Support Team  which can offer your School access to financial expertise via our Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and scale of efficiency. You will also benefit from access to our newly procured and future-proofed IT system and on-site support.  
In addition the Trust is committed to working in an environmentally sustainable way impacting both energy and education.
