Welcome to the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership. We are a multi-academy trust of five children’s centres, four primary schools, three secondary schools and a teaching school. Our seven academies are quite distinctive and separate schools, serving different communities and phases: but all either are, or have the capacity to become outstanding by 2016.
The ATLP aims to achieve clear community benefits and to enhance the life chances of local children by providing an even better learning environment.
Our vision is to improve education standards and achievements for all children in the community by creating a model of education support and delivery that reflects the needs and goals of our partner schools in the 21st century. At the heart of this goal of ensuring each academy is a centre of excellence where each headteacher, leadership team and local governing body has something unique to share with their partner academies.
The Partnership is continuing to grow as we strengthen our links with our learning communities. Our schools look after more than 4200 pupils and we employ in excess of 600 staff.
All of our schools are led by exceptionally able headteachers who have the highest expectations and standards. Part of my role as CEO is to coach and mentor headteachers and to develop new leaders. The work of the ATLP is underpinned by the National Teaching School, which offers a range of leadership programmes and training and development opportunities for staff across the schools.
These are exciting times for the Partnership. By working together we are better equipped to successfully stay at the forefront of educational change and to provide an outstanding learning community.
We hope you will be part of our journey to continued success.
National Leader in Education and Chief Executive
of the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership (ATLP).
The Central Support Team
The Central Support Term (CST) is a team of employees led by the CEO, with expertise to support the development of learning and teaching and the administrative aspects of the Learning Partnership.
These specialists provide a high level of support to each school in order to share expertise and resources which will help us to improve further. The CST is responsible for providing a range of services including: Buildings, Business Development, Finance, HR, IT, Personnel, and PR & Communications.
