Hamstead Hall Academy Trust
We are currently working on another website for the Hamstead Hall Academy Trust which will include all the Academy Trust information in an accessible format.
For the time being the information is presented here.
Hamstead Hall Academy Trust was formed in 2013 and currently consists of two academies: Hamstead Hall Academy, an 11-18 secondary and Grestone Academy, a three-form primary academy with a nursery. The strategic aim of the Trust is to improve the educational outcomes of all the children and young people it is directly responsible for. This will be achieved through the recruitment and retention of a high quality and committed workforce. We intend to deliver outstanding professional learning and enhanced career opportunities for staff in our academies.
The improvement priorities have been designed to have a significant impact on the quality of teaching and learning, removing barriers to achievement and enhancing educational outcomes. The Trust has a rigorous Quality Assurance Programme with external validation to ensure its processes and outcomes are of a consistently high quality.
The Trust is a strategic partner in the Arthur Terry School Teaching Alliance, as well as being a member of the Titan Partnership and the Birmingham Education Partnership (BEP) with a place on the BEP Strategic Leadership and Improvement Committee (SLIC). These partnerships are an active part of the Trust’s academy improvement strategy.
All Academies within The Hamstead Hall Multi Academy Trust are governed by one Trust (the Members) and a board of Directors. Directors of the Hamstead Hall Academy Trust are appointed by the Members and include the Executive Principals. The Hamstead Hall Academy Trust holds ultimate responsibility for all decisions regarding the running of the individual Academies. However, whilst finance, HR, estates, ICT, admissions and marketing are managed centrally, the Hamstead Hall Academy Trust delegates decisions relating to the curriculum and learning and teaching to the local governing bodies of the individual Academies. This ensures that academies within the Trust can retain their individuality. Opportunities are given to share best practice and to participate in shared opportunities for professional development.
