Why Coombe Academy Trust?
It has grown out of a strong relationship and local partnership between our five schools. The identity of the Trust lies in the strength of the relationship between the schools and leaders. Each of our schools has its own individual identity based on a shared set of values and all members of the Trust recognise the importance of providing the best education and care for our children.
The Coombe Academy Trust was founded by Coombe Boys’ School & Coombe Girls’ School in February 2012 and built on the already well established Hard Federation that had existed between the schools since January 2006. In April 2014, we welcomed Knollmead Primary School into the Trust, in September 2018 Green Lane Primary & Nursery School and in September 2019 Robin Hood Primary & Nursery School. We are very proud of the collaborative and effective way in which the schools work together for the benefit of each of their communities and the Trust as a whole.
Our visions and values
‘Preparing you for a world of opportunity’
The Coombe Academy Trust schools are committed to ensuring outstanding leadership at all levels underpinned by integral core values and bespoke professional development ensuring lifelong learning for all staff, trainees and volunteers across the Trust in an environment where success is recognised and celebrated.
All members of the Trust’s communities are friendly, caring, respectful and tolerant towards each other; ambitious and aspirational for themselves and others; honest and show integrity in all they do; positive and resilient at all times.
We welcome applications from candidates who share our passion for providing opportunity and aspiration for all learners in a safe, stimulating, happy environment where teaching inspires a love of learning and an enquiring mind.
The Coombe Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
All offers of employment are subject to an Enhanced DBS check, and where applicable, a prohibition from teaching check will be completed for all applicants.
In line with our commitments to safeguarding, the Trust uses preferred agencies and is unable to work with any agencies where Terms of Business have not been agreed by both parties prior to an engagement. We are fully committed to equality and to valuing diversity as an employer and a provider of education.
