As a group of schools, we believe in reciprocity; all school and staff benefit from working together to ensure our children and young people are prepared for a world of opportunity.
We believe in working together to ensure every child and young person has the desire and determination to achieve success. Each school's curriculum aims to nurture and develop the aspirations of or children and young people, ensuring every child and young person has meaningful life opportunities.
We recognise the strong correlation between trust and the capacity to develop and improve. As a group of schools we work together with strength, resillience and transparency. Working together as one organisation we serve each school community's unique context.
Bespoke professional development ensures lifelong learning for all staff in an environment where success at all level is recognised and celebrated. In turn this provides a high standard of inclusive education for our children and young people, one in which their lives are enriched with meaningful opportunities and achieves the best possible wellbeing and academic outccomes. In short, this ensures children and young people leave Coombe Academy Trust well prepared for their next stage in life and education.
The ethos or character of Coombe Academy Trust is guided by the overarching values of:
Collaboration - Ambition - Trust.
These values underpin our Coombe Academy Trust Curriculum Principles; ensuring every child and young person has an entitlement to a World of Opportunity. Whilst each school is unique and serves a local community, our curriculum principles are the drivers which define the curriculum in each of our schools.
Our vision ‘Preparing you for a world of opportunity’ remains unchanged as we have expanded. In essence ‘Preparing you for a world of opportunity’ means our staff have successful and fulfilled careers throughout their time in the trust, our pupils develop the skills and knowledge to be successful throughout their education and beyond, our organisation ensures our schools can flourish and our wider community value the power of collaboration with the trust. Our values embody and define the way we work with: Collaboration - Ambition - Trust.
Our aims are therefore:
For our staff: To provide outstanding leadership at all levels, supported by strong professional development
For our pupils: To provide an outstanding education for all children and young people, enabling them to thrive throughout their time in education
For our organisation: To provide strong and aligned systems and processes; enabling our schools to be efficient and effective, therefore prioritising the development of individuality within the school community and curriculum
For our wider community: To collaborate effectively with our school community, cluster schools, Wandle Hub, King’s College Wimbledon and potential new schools seeking the benefits of collaboration
