Our Vision

Truro and Penwith Academy Trust is a partnership of primary and secondary schools in Cornwall with the shared vision to improve life chances of all children and young people in our schools. Truro and Penwith College was the founding sponsor of the Trust in 2014 and is represented by Members and appoints some Trustees.
The shared ethos for the Trust is to expect excellent leadership of high quality teaching and learning to benefit all children and young people with an emphasis on supporting our staff in their professional growth and development.
Our vision is to improve the life chances for all children and young people in our schools.
In order to achieve this, we will:
  • recognise and encourage local distinctiveness and individuality
  • acknowledge the diverse nature of the communities our schools serve with a focus on equality, diversity and inclusion
  • inspire our Schools to become beacons of aspiration in the communities they serve
  • focus on improving learning and teaching for all – to enable all children and young people to have the best possible learning experience, leading to the highest levels of achievement
  • be an employer of choice – valuing the skills, contribution and expertise of all employees and providing professional growth opportunities
  • work in partnership with our associates to provide bespoke support and improvement activities of the highest quality in our Schools
  • support our Schools to be financially sustainable and to retain reserves
