The Willow Learning Trust was established six years ago in 2017 and now comprises three schools in Sutton and Merton which have been working together productively for many years: Glenthorne High School, Aragon Primary School and Abbey Primary School, all of which share a set of core values and are proud to belong to the Willow Learning Trust but also to maintain autonomy in leadership, governance and their own identity. The vision of the Willow Learning Trust is to raise standards in the local community through close partnership between Trust schools, building on existing strong links between schools to develop an innovative, creative, collaborative curriculum and an achievement culture with a comprehensive, inclusive ethos.
Schools in the Willow Learning Trust work together in a spirit of partnership and collaboration to promote development and improvement and to raise standards.
The Willow Learning Trust has a strong ethos and identity and a compelling vision for a Trust of a dozen schools in South/South-West London and bordering counties.
Our vision and ethos have led to a clear set of objectives that we aim to complete by 2024. We aim to lock in continuous improvement through collaboration, innovation, CPD and support.
The supportive and inclusive atmosphere fostered by the trust is unparalleled.
Staff wellbeing is a focus within the trust. Opportunities for flexible working and monthly wellbeing days have been a real benefit for me. The trust not only works to continuously ensure staff wellbeing is a priority but has also created an exceptionally warm, nurturing and caring environment for the children.
The spirit of collaboration and partnership is the thriving centrepiece to the Trust’s work.
Throughout my time teaching in schools across the Trust, I have felt valued, trusted and supported. Being a teacher is the best job in the world and I couldn’t ask for a better place to do it!
