Success Academy Trust (Multi Academy Trust) was formed in September 2016 in collaboration with local schools in order to work together across Primary and Secondary phases to improve provision and outcomes for local young people aged 3-16, and to build on successful collaborative work already in place around sharing best practice, school improvement, and achieving value for money.
Thomas Estley Community College (lead school in the Thomas Estley Learning Alliance) works together with Cosby Primary, Cosby; Hallbrook Primary, Broughton Astley; Richmond Primary, Hinckley and Thomas Estley Preschool - local schools and provision with the vision of improving outcomes for local children, while Building Leadership and Character Together for the whole community, at their heart.
We are also registered as an Academy Trust Sponsor for other schools who may approach us for additional targeted school improvement support to help improve their standards and performance. The Success AT website includes details of the make-up of the current Board.
Our model of governance now has a separate Board of Trustees and Members for Success AT as well as our Local Governance Committee (LGC) of Thomas Estley Community College to which the Board of Trustees has delegated most of the day-to-day operations of the school through its scheme of delegation.
Insurance arrangements - Since 1 September 2019, Thomas Estley Community College as part of Success Academy Trust is a member of the Risk Protection Arrangement (RPA) organised by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
