We aim to adopt the self improving school model alongside other research to develop our Academies to become outstanding.

“Being part of the Trust has given the primary school students the opportunity to get to know the Hatton peer mentors before they join the ‘big’ school. The children get to know one another which makes their transition less scary. We have close links to the Trust schools, it’s like one big family.”
