Our Story

Welcome to the Vantage Academy Trust

I am Simon Bramwell and I am very proud to be the Chief Executive of the Vantage Academy Trust. We are a group of primary academies passionate about giving every child and adult in our schools the very best opportunities to learn, grow and succeed.  Every person in our trust is a learner and we are all ambitious for ourselves and for one another.

At the heart of our vision is a shared curriculum and approach to teaching and learning across our schools. The International Primary Curriculum and its eight learning goals are deeply embedded across all of our academies – providing both rigour and internationally recognised standards for all pupils. The goals, which are shared by everyone in our schools, are:

  • Co-operation
  • Adaptability
  • Thoughtfulness
  • Resilience
  • Communication
  • Enquiry
  • Respect
  • Morality

As a trust, we are deeply committed to improving outcomes for all children and supporting schools with a history of underperformance to become both inspirational and safe places in which to learn. We do this by investing in and developing exceptional teachers, leaders and support staff; building strong relationships with parents and our local communities; providing inspirational learning environments; and demonstrating high expectations for every school and every child across the trust.

I hope that you enjoy learning more about us through this website.
