Aletheia Academies Trust consists of twelve academies including eleven Primary schools, one Nursery and one All-Through School. With expansion on the horizon and our community growing, our student population of 4,600 pupils is projected to increase to over 8,000 by 2031 based on current and known growth plans. We see the growth of Aletheia as an opportunity for schools, leaders, and governors to step forward as co-shapers of a school-led and self-improving system in our area.
Aletheia is committed to sustaining high-quality academies as well as supporting those in need of specific improvement. Our focus is to provide school improvement services that draw on the wealth of practice from across our Trust, broaden the expertise available to schools through flexible working arrangements and increase our capacity to respond quickly to the needs of individual schools. Pedagogical excellence is at the heart of all we do, with a sustained focus on collaborative and mastery learning.
Aletheia has Teacher Training ‘Hub’ status. This assists its recruitment, training and retention of staff, providing the start of many successful careers.
History of the Trust
At Aletheia, our aim has always been to build a sustainable model that allows us to carry out the function of a civic institution; to encourage and support schools to improve provision, opportunities and outcomes for local children.
Saint George’s converted to academy status as a Single Academy Trust (SAT) in 2011. With Shorne C of E Primary School and St. Botolph's C of E Primary School, St George's established Aletheia Academies Trust was established in late 2014 with a commitment to developing high-quality academies.
Since then, our Trust has grown as a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) in strength, capacity and expertise. We now serve over 5,000 pupils across eleven academies.
