What does the Trust stand for?

The Trust for Specialist Schools is committed to providing an ordered, stimulating learning environment in which all students are encouraged to achieve at their highest level. It is determined that all students should be valued through the provision of a broad, relevant, balanced and challenging curriculum properly catering for individual needs. Such valuing is encouraged within a high performing atmosphere of mutual respect amongst all those involved in the learning process.

The trust recognises the role specialist schools must play within the broader community. It is determined to maintain a business and enterprise culture throughout schools, their curriculums and across extended learning opportunities. It identifies learning as a lifelong process and values the contribution made by parents and others to the creation of a partnership. Within this partnership, and through the education programme, students will develop skills, attitudes and values that properly prepare them to accept the challenges and responsibilities of adult life.

The Trust for Specialist Schools provides information about developments within the Specialist Schools sector.

At the Trust for Specialist Schools, our principles include helping students to develop lively, enquiring minds, encouraging the ability to question and argue rationally and confronting them with challenging mental and physical tasks in order to ensure the highest possible level of achievement.

We also look to ensure students are taught respect for each other, for religious and moral values and tolerance of other races, religions and ways of life, as well as the ability to acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to adult life in a rapidly changing world.
