Exceptional Education For All

The Collegiate Trust is a family of schools that exists to improve education in Croydon, Crawley and the surrounding areas for children and young people up to the age of 19.

Our mission is to collaborate to deliver an Exceptional Education for All and our schools share a common belief that this comprises an academically rigorous curriculum, the opportunities for pupils to engage in creative and cultural learning and the development of personal skills and qualities that will enable future success.

Our strong culture of ambition, focussed clearly on PEOPLE and LEARNING, ensures the best interests of all those in our communities are always at the heart of our decision-making.

The work of The Collegiate Trust is informed by our core values:
Ambition    Collaboration

Leading to:
Achievement    Enjoyment

Keys to Success

There are three particular themes that drive our work and can be described as our keys to success:

Partnership – The Collegiate Trust is our family of schools and it is only through the strongest partnerships within and beyond our community that we achieve the success that our pupils deserve. Our approach means that we work hard to cultivate strong professional relationships with each other, with our pupils, with their families and the wider community as we see this as the foundation on which our Trust is built.

Progress – To us, progress means much more than academic improvement. We place a great focus on personal and professional growth for all members of our community and it is this emphasis on continuous improvement that enables our pupils to fulfil their potential.

Preparation – Whether for the next stage of education, for work or for a future that is uncertain, it is our view that the prime purpose of school is to prepare young people for the rest of their lives and it is our intention that pupils who attend a school in The Collegiate Trust will have the very best preparation to help them achieve their goals and to go on to enjoy very happy and successful futures.
