Welcome from Chair of Trustees

A very warm welcome to the Langley Park Learning Trust. It is my privilege to serve the children of our schools as Chair of the Board of Trustees.

LPLT in its current form came about on 1 September 2018 and we are immensely proud of the five schools that make up our family. Each school has its own personality and strengths but all share a joint vision to foster a culture for learning that is bold, ambitious and inspiring. We are very fortunate to have a talented and committed Trust Board who use their varied experience and expertise to support and challenge the senior leaders and ensure that the trust is fulfilling not only its statutory obligations but also ensuring the Trust is best placed and resourced to deliver on its ambitious goals for our students.

The Trust has to ensure that it is always in the strongest position to support our schools in an ever-changing national educational landscape. The Trust works with our excellent CEO and her experienced central team to ensure we are focused on the issues which will most improve the outcomes for our students. Whilst primarily strategic, we are also aware that our decisions effect all our students and their families and we are working to better understand each of our schools and their individual needs and challenges.

This is an exciting stage in the Trust’s development and on behalf of the board. I thank you for your continued support and look forward to working with you for the benefit of all our aspiring and inspiring students.
