The Wensum Trust is a not-for-profit sponsor of primary and secondary education. The Trust will have the highest aspirations for all children in its schools, regardless of their background and work tirelessly to help pupils reach their full potential. We believe that education is far broader and deeper than the national curriculum and examination programmes of study. Important as these are, we want our students to strive to gain experiences that will develop their personality and make them ready for the 21st Century. For example, this could include representing their Academy at sporting, cultural or academic events, being actively involved in the community, or going to major theatre productions, plays, musicals, the opera or ballet. The Wensum Trust is a new sponsor of academies, however, academies in the Trust have a proven record of providing support and challenge in both the secondary and primary phases which has resulted in rapid school improvement. The Wensum Trust academies will benefit from expertise from both the private and public sector and with experience from an “outstanding” academy. This is why the Trust has placed so much importance on recruiting the right people as Trustees.
