About Us

Truro & Penwith Academy Trust (TPAT) is a trust of 34 schools from the Lands End peninsula to Liskeard.  We have a shared mission to improve life chances for all children and young people in our schools.  

 We believe all children and young people are entitled to an excellent education and our schools are deeply committed to working with some of our most vulnerable and deprived communities.  We are proud of our inclusive approach to curriculum whereby adaptations ensure all pupils have access to an ambitious curriculum.  

 Our schools are developing greater alignment in our use of technology through our Advantage programme of digital transformation, establishing core expectations around assessment and feedback. 

 We operate across three geographic hubs and we are establishing our fourth hub for south west Cornwall.  Hubs provide opportunity for teachers, leaders and support teams to meet, share practice and continuously improve our education provision. 

 As a trust we deliver a full range of central services from an extensive professional team based in Truro.  We offer HR, financial management, operations and estate management, health and safety, corporate governance and IT service support to all schools.
