Be part of our tribe


Welcome to Cheshire Academies Trust

Be around the light bringers
the magic makers, the world shifters.
They challenge you, break you open
uplift and expand you.
They don't let you play small with your life.
These heartbeats are your people.
These people are your

“Working with Cheshire Academies Trust has offered numerous benefits for our teachers and leaders at Bexton. The collaboration opportunities across our schools have provided valuable support and opportunities to share best practice which, in turn, has improved learning outcomes for our children. But most importantly, we are working with a fantastic group of people who are passionate about doing the right thing for children, making sure everyone achieves their full potential in their own unique way.”

“Being a new headteacher, I have found numerous benefits to working within Cheshire Academies Trust. I am able to tap into a wealth of expertise, resources and support from other school leaders and professionals, which has helped to improve teaching and learning outcomes within my school as well as develop and refined my own leadership practice. Additionally, the sense of community and shared vision amongst those within the trust creates a positive and empowering environment in which to work for both staff and pupils, which I believe is essential for fostering a culture of continuous improvement and growth. I enjoy working within our trust because it allows me to collaborate with like-minded professionals who are dedicated to providing the best education and opportunities for the children under our care.”
