At Essa Foundation Academies Trust our children are at the heart of everything we do.

We make the most of our unique family of schools to give every child the best possible opportunity to flourish and develop into a decent, disciplined, well-educated, and employable young person.

For parents, we offer a comprehensive and consistent approach to their child’s education, an environment where unparalleled pastoral care processes are understood and upheld.  Following a student’s learning journey from 4 years old to 16 allows the school to positively support a child; knowing them well as learners.

For students, the benefits are huge; a direct product of the proximity of younger children to older ones.  Student-to-student mentoring, the provision of excellent role models for younger students, leadership and mentoring opportunities to develop confidence, resilience and character, a unified approach to the ESSA experience and an overwhelming sense of community and family.  Opportunities are also offered for primary students to learn in specialist facilities, including science and technology rooms, Music and Art studios and sports provision.


For staff, there are opportunities to share best practice and to create opportunities to learn from one another.  This creates a shared educational ethos that supports children from age 4 to 16 and provides consistently high expectations for all.  At Essa we provide  greater opportunities for staff development, encouraging different phases to work together to raise standards.

That’s why our mission is "All Will Succeed."
