Trust to foster a love of learning
An educational trust has been re-launched to boost the aspirations and educational attainment of young people and the wider community in the Redcar and Cleveland and Esk Valley areas.
Six secondary schools, Bydales, Kirkleatham Hall, Rye Hills, Sacred Heart, Redcar Academy, and Laurence Jackson, and three primary schools, Zetland, Castleton and Glaisdale, have joined forces to establish the Trust 4 Learning.
The Trust will work with a range of community partners including Coast & Country, one of the largest regeneration and housing companies in the North East, Darlington Building Society, The Sage Gateshead, Teesside University, Prior Pursglove College, Redcar & Cleveland College and The Centre for Process Innovation.
The Trust, which embraces a total of 4,750 pupils, has been established to:
Unlock the entrepreneurial and creative energies of its communities
Promote innovation, inclusion, and inspirational education
Encourage social equality and good citizenship
Foster dynamic and productive partnerships
Trust 4 Learning spokesman Tony Hobbs said: “The aim of the Trust is to bring together the individual strengths of the nine schools and the partner agencies as a collective resource, schools and partners working together to pursue excellence in all areas of educational endeavour.
“This collaboration will add value to the learning journey for pupils in the Redcar and Cleveland and Esk Valley area and also provide long-lasting learning opportunities for the wider community.
“The Trust’s pioneering approach will help young people achieve as much as they can, provide meaningful work experience and career support and advice, and help foster a spirit of aspiration.”
Iain Sim, Coast & Country Chief Executive, said: “Coast & Country is committed to supporting initiatives to improve the well-being of the wider community.
“The Trust will be a great asset to the area by ensuring that young people reach their full potential from both an academic and personal development point of view.”
The Trust also will:
Extend the provision and access to high quality facilities, services and learning opportunities for members of the whole community
Share experiences and provide a range of support and expertise beyond what the schools are able to offer individually
Through external partners, provide learning and development opportunities for both students and staff, activities to support the curriculum and access to specialist resources
