Our personalised model of learning will provide exciting opportunities for the young people in our Academies, giving them the tools and skills they need to succeed in the modern world.
Together with our committed team of teachers, students and community partners we are dedicated to realising our core objective — ‘achieving more than we thought possible´.
The Learning Schools Trust (LST) is the non-profit, charitable organisation that operates the Kunskapsskolan-sponsored academies in England.
Two Learning School Trust academies opened in September 2010: Twickenham Academy and Hampton Academy. Ipswich Academy, opened in March 2011 and Elizabeth Woodville School in Northamptonshire joined in December 2012.
LST´s Academies are non-fee paying, not faith-based, non-selective and strive to offer its students the widest range of possible qualifications, based on the English National Curriculum and incorporating Kunskapsskolan´s unique personalised learning model.
At Learning Schools Trust, our vision is:
“To operate outstanding schools in which every student, through personalised learning and clear goals, will stretch their boundaries and learn more than they thought possible".
All aspects of our schools are designed to provide a personalised education that meets the needs of each student and are built around the following core values:
All people are different
Success depends on challenging goals and clear requirements
We educate for Life
“Life is what I make it"
The Learning Schools Trust Board has confirmed the appointment of Steve Bolingbroke as CEO of Learning Schools Trust in succession to John Baumber.
Steve will assume the role of CEO with immediate effect (1 October) so that he can focus on the many curriculum and pedagogic developments he is leading on. John Baumber will formally step down at Christmas but will continue to work with LST in a consultative capacity.
Mr Bolingbroke says: “It is a privilege to work in schools. The young people we are responsible for deserve the very best education they can get. They will need all the skills, knowledge, resilience and self-confidence that we help them develop as they face the challenges of a changing world.
“It is an honour to have been chosen to lead the many talented and committed people who work in our Academies. We share a vision that a different kind of education is needed for students to ‘achieve more than they thought possible´ and to prepare them for the world they will inherit.
“I look forward to working with all our talented staff to create outstanding personalised learning schools."
Ipswich Academy students celebrate 98% pass rate in the first A-level results at the Academy. 66% results are at A* to C. All 18 students with University places achieved the grades they needed.
