Welcome from Chair of Trustees

Langley Park Learning Trust (LPLT), our Multi Academy Trust (MAT) is dedicated to ensuring children and young people at our schools receive the best education that they can.

LPLT in its current form came about on 1 September 2018 when Langley Park Academies, comprising of Langley Park School for Girls, Clare House Primary School, Hawes Down Primary School and Langley Park Primary School, formally joined together with the Langley Park School for Boys Academy Trust. We saw this as an ideal opportunity to build on our shared ethos and to raise standards, particularly through sharing expertise and enhancing transition between the key stages.  LPLT also provides opportunities for staff development and for more effective resource management through economies of scale. We are excited about the emerging work on a jointly planned curriculum and the wider opportunities for working together to create Excellence in Education.

Whilst the Board of Trustees has overall responsibility for the performance of Trust schools, authority is delegated to the headteacher and school governing body in each school. Through the CEO, Trustees ensure that headteachers are focused on raising standards for all children and young people in their school and the wider Trust.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in our work, and would encourage you to follow our continued development through our website.
