Leading Learners MAT about image

Established in 2015, Leading Learners MAT aims to develop all members of its Trust academies’ communities, from children to academy leaders.

“Together For Excellence”

We have supported the successful improvement of many local schools and firmly believe in the power of mutual collaboration, partnership working and shared accountability between Trust academies, leading to better outcomes for all.

Leading Learners seeks to provide clear career pathways and offers exciting opportunities for staff to grow and develop, recognising and rewarding individual strengths.

We are not a hierarchical Trust. Our holistic, supportive approach encompasses all aspects of each academy, consistently achieving and maintaining standards of excellence.

Unique places

We understand that schools are proud of their individuality and it is important to us that what makes members of Leading Learners unique is maintained. The Trust’s aims are focused on delivering better outcomes for children within their familiar environments.

Who we are

Leading Learners Multi-Academy Trust was founded by the leaders of Tyldesley Primary School to provide a supportive platform for schools in the local area and beyond.

Already leading the Forward Together Teaching School Alliance, and having led the improvement of local schools for seven years previously, Tyldesley is a tremendous success story with Key Stage 2 results ranking amongst the top 15 in the country.

Senior leaders have considerable leadership and school improvement experience, NLE and SLE status, NQT training specialism and high-level coaching and mentoring skills.
