The Trust officially launched on January 1st 2018 as a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) known as the Soke Education Trust. Soke Education Trust is a Primary School MAT consisting of six schools: Alderman Jacobs School, Gunthorpe Primary School, John Clare Primary School, Northborough Primary School, Werrington Primary School and Wittering Primary School.
The Trust’s principles are based upon core moral leadership which places our learners at the centre of everything that we do. Our ambitions are to: Strive for high achievement, Explore the world we live in and Transform life opportunities. We aim to achieve this through our shared values of collaboration, communication, leadership, aspiration and integrity. Each school is led by the Headteacher and its Local Governance Committee, driving opportunity and school improvement whilst retaining its own unique flavour and identity. We recognise the vast array of positive qualities and strengths within each of our Academies. Working together and drawing upon this wealth of talent ensures that we provide the very best learning opportunities and enrichment for our pupils. Our Trustees play a pivotal role in ensuring all aspects of the Trust's work positively enhances outcomes and opportunities for the pupils, providing support and leadership across the Trust and maintaining the highest regulatory expectations as set out by the DFE/ESFA.
